Frank Lampard insisted that for Chelsea to be successful it is “important everybody fights in the right direction.”
Speaking during his post-match press conference, as cited by Football London, Lampard said Gilmour and Mason Mount were “great” against Luton:
“It’s a competition we’ve had success with and the expectation is we go through. We had to get the game right and we did.
“I thought [Gilmour and Mount] in midfield were great. Their movement of the ball, their discipline, it’s something we can look at going forward.
“[Gilmour] was outstanding today. He’s comfortable on the ball, his discipline, he was outstanding. With his youth and the injury he had, and with the run we’ve been on, it’s about finding the right time to bring him in. For the short term, he won’t be going out on loan but we’ll keep that open a little until the end of the month.
“It’s important everybody fights in the right direction. That’s the only way we can be successful as a football club. We did that today.
“Callum did very well with his input in [the third goal] and it’s lovely to see goals like that. There was a lot of good play from us today, a lot of threats. I’m pleased because that’s positive. Players need to continue with that attitude.
