Thomas Tuchel sent reminder that he already has the perfect Jorginho successor in Chelsea squad
Billy Gilmour has had a difficult season with Norwich but his Scotland display showed the assets he still has to offer Chelsea
There were contrasting fortunes for Chelsea’s stars on Thursday evening. As Jorginho crashed out of World Cup qualifying with Italy, Billy Gilmour found his way back onto the pitch to help earn Scotland a draw against Poland in their friendly international. Both players were victims of late goals from the opposition but the stakes were a great deal higher for the Italian midfielder.
The Blues’ midfield maestro went from a successful stint at Stamford Bridge over the latest stretch of the season as Chelsea qualified for the Champions League quarter-finals and FA Cup semi-finals to World Cup heartbreak, while Gilmour was able to escape his Norwich struggles with an authoritative performance for the Tartan Army.
