The two blues midfielders didn't get the opportunity to go against each other in the group stage after Gilmour tested positive for COVID-19. Gilmour earned huge praises for his performance in the 0-0 draw with England at Wembley where he also received the man of the match award.

The champions league winner is seen as the next big thing that would come from the Chelsea academy alongside the likes of mount, Callum Hudson and Andres Christensen.
