Gilmour tells Frank Lampard his best position ahead of Fulham clash

Chelsea’s young midfielder Billy Gilmour has revealed he is happy to play anywhere in midfield for Chelsea, either deeper or as a number 8.

“I don’t really have a preference. I enjoy playing both positions. I’ll happily do whatever I’m asked to do because I know that I’ve done both in my career so far,” Gilmour told Chelsea’s official website.

“When you’re playing deeper, you’re more likely to go and receive the ball from the defenders, dictate play, create opportunities and also protect the defence

“It’s similar in the number eight position but you’re doing it in a more attacking sense where you need to make the box and make more forward runs.”
