Tuchel told the Mail: “He has the full package, mentally, in terms of talent and physically.

“And the most important part is his character, he has his feet on the ground and he’s a nice guy.

“He comes to Cobham every day to learn something new and have new experiences.

“He is the guy who can recover very fast, he’s a very physical player and is fully adapted to Premier League football.”

Scotland teenager Gilmour was handed his first Premier League start under Tuchel and he made a big impression.

Tuchel told Chelsea TV: “Very, very good. He’s a confident guy, he’s well aware of his qualities, which is good.

“It was not necessary for him to convince me today because I’m already convinced, otherwise I would not have picked him for the line-up.

“So it was necessary that he plays his part, that he helps the team, and this is what he did. I’m happy for him.”

Chelsea closed in on a top-four finish with their latest win and will attempt to overcome Real Madrid and reach the Champions League final on Wednesday.
