NOR 0-3 LIV: Why Chelsea Youngstar Could Force His Way Into Thomas Tuchel's Plans In January

Liverpool enjoyed a perfect night in the League Cup, with three academy debutants and three goals in a comfortable win against Norwich City in the third round. Despite the heavy defeat, Chelsea youngstar Billy Gilmour, put in another excellent display in midfield and was unlucky not to get an assist.

Gilmour was deployed in the number 6 role and the Scotland international dictated the tempo and competed well against the experienced Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita.

Why Gilmour Could force his way into Thomas Tuchel's plans in January?

Given N'Golo Kante's recent injury problems, Tuchel could be tempted to recall Gilmour in January if Kante is unable to overcome his injury concerns.

Gilmour will undoubtedly be an excellent addition to the Blues midfield, and Thomas Tuchel has the ability to bring out the best in him, as he has with Nathan Chalobah this season.
