[OPINION] Chelsea Fans Have to Accept That Billy Gilmour Is Better Than Saul Niguez

It's height time for Chelsea fans to understand that Billy Gilmour is two times better than Saul Niguez. Chelsea's biggest mistake during this transfer season was loaning The 20-year-old Billy Clifford Gilmour and going for Atletico Madrid's midfielder Saul Niguez. Saul's performance at Atletico Madrid was quite poor compared to Billy Glamour's performance last season for Chelsea.

I understand that the Chelsea board wants the 20-year-old midfielder to gather more experience, but should have considered his talent. Gilmour might learn more from the recent Chelsea squad than from Norwich City.

The 26-year-old Saul Niguez is not valued in Atletico Madrid, last season he played only three games, with fewer impressions.

Saul Niguez only had one poor assist last season, which is not worth a world-class team like Chelsea. Saul in total has played 42 games for Atletico Madrid, he has only scored two goals with a single assist so far. According to his Atletico Madrid history, he had 84% completed passes, 1.82 shots per match, 15.5 shots per goal, I don't even know why most people compare him to Paul Pogba, we all know Pogba is a world-class midfielder.

Bringing Billy Gilmour's stats for Chelsea last season in, the Scottish footballer only played 7 games for Chelsea last season. According to his stats against Liverpool, he had 62 touches, 37 completed passes, 5 tackles, 2 take-ons completed and one chance created. That was only against Liverpool last season.

The 20-year-old Scottish player also won the man of the match yesterday, here are his stats;

Billy Gilmour Vs Moldova by numbers:

73' minutes played

Don't compare Billy Gilmour to Saul Niguez, the 20 years old is much better.
