Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour has recalled an incident between himself and Manchester United’s Harry Maguire earlier in the season in which the defender grabbed his throat.

Gilmour, 5’6″, started the Blues’ Carabao Cup clash with the Red Devils in October and came up against 6’4″ Maguire.

Per MailOnline’s Adam Shergold, the 18-year-old said on Tuesday:

“He was pushing me off, gripping me by the throat. Basically he was saying I’m a wee [small] guy.

“That’s something I have to deal with. But I won’t let that happen again. That was a lesson.

“He is going to try to bully young ones and that’s where I need to learn how to be stronger.

“I’ve been working on that and I can only get stronger. But that was a learning curve when he gripped me in the box.”

Gilmour was on the losing side that night as United triumphed 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in what was his second senior start for Chelsea.

He made his third start for the club on Tuesday as the Blues played Liverpool in the FA Cup, and he played an important role in helping his team record a 2-0 win.
