Liverpool have now lost three times in their last four matches.
After losing their Champions League last-16 tie against Atletico Madrid and being defeated for the first time in the Premier League by Watford, the Reds crashed out of the FA Cup with a 2-0 loss to Chelsea.
Jurgen Klopp did make changes for the visit to Stamford Bridge but it was still a stronger side than many expected.
The likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Andy Robertson, Fabinho and Sadio Mane were all in the starting line-up.
But Frank Lampard also made a change or two. One of which was handing Scottish 18-year-old midfielder Billy Gilmour a start in place of Jorginho.
Gilmour had only played 281 minutes before Tuesday but produced a quite incredible Man of the Match performance to help his into the quarter-finals of the competition.
The crowning moment was completely humiliating Fabinho, tying up opponent up in knots with a fantastic bit of skill.
And now, a highlights video has emerged showing Gilmour’s every touch during his brilliant display.
From beating Liverpool’s press with one-touch passing, bullying Liverpool’s midfield and breaking up attacks with interceptions – Gilmour had it all.
Take a look:
Well played, that kid.
Gilmour couldn’t hide his delight when talking to BBC at full-time, admitting he had worked hard for this opportunity.
“It was a good match, so it was,” Gilmour said. “I’ve been training very hard to get this chance and today I stepped up and took my opportunity – it was a great game and a great victory.”
And his manager, Frank Lampard, is pleased that everyone recognised his performance.
“What an incredible performance for a young player,” Lampard said afterwards. “He was a calm head in that first five or 10 minutes. He’s a throwback of a midfielder.
“Can you put your foot in? Yes. Can you make angles to play the passes? Yes. He’s only slight in stature but he’s huge in personality. He deserves people to talk about him after a performance like that.”
Billy Gilmour – remember the name.
