“Masterclass incoming” – Chelsea fans react to Tuchel’s team for crunch London derby

Chelsea can all but seal their Champions League place for next season with a win tonight, and Thomas Tuchel knows it.

Despite the FA Cup final this weekend and the European Cup final still to come, the coach know the league must be wrapped up before anything, so he’s had to go with a strong side tonight.

With Mateo Kovacic out and Tuchel keen to keep N’Golo Kante fresh, Billy Gilmour gets his THIRD consecutive Premier League start for the Blues. It shows a growing trust from the manager in the young midfielder, and we can’t get enough of it.

Fans on social media were understandably delighted by their boy wonder getting another go. “Masterclass incoming” declared one – let’s hope so. They seemed particularly keen on the idea of Billy playing alongside Jorginho in midfield.

Cue Spiderman “no, you” memes.
