Billy Gilmour stunned Fabinho with a filthy nutmeg during Chelsea vs Liverpool in their FA Cup clash at the Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
Liverpool’s poor run of form post the winter break continued as they conceded twice to lose their FA Cup 5th round bout against Chelsea. In response, the Reds failed to open their account. In fact, they have only found the back of the net once in their last 4 matches.
Liverpool were thoroughly outplayed by Frank Lampard’s side. Goals from Willian and Ross Barkley set the tone for the win but it was Billy Gilmour who made the biggest splash in the match. The 18-year old completely dominated the midfield.
In fact, one of the highlights of the match was when Gilmour sent Liverpool’s Fabinho back to Monaco with a nutmeg that made the Brazilian look like Bambi on ice. If Olivier Giroud would have scored from there then it would have completed one of the most fantastic sequence in football.

All in all, Gilmour had an amazing game. He had 62 touches in total, of which he completed 37 passes and won 5 successful tackles against the side that dominated the Premier League all season before and was rightly adjudged the man of the match.
