Billy Gilmour will be representing Chelsea in the second ePremier League Invitational tournament and will be looking to redeem Chelsea after their embarrassing loss in the first tournament.

Reece James who represented the Blues last time was humbled by Everton‘s Andre Gomes in an 8-0 drubbing in the opening round of the first ePremier League tournament last month.


The inaugural edition was a huge success and was won by Wolves player Diego Jota, who defeated Liverpool Trent Alexander-Arnold in the final.

Chelsea captain César Azpilicueta too could not progress in the EA Sports #StayAndPlay Cup and Chelsea youngster Mason Mount also was defeated by his good friend Declan Rice in a friendly game.

The Premier League players have come together to setup the #PlayersTogether initiative, through which they can contribute their own donations into the NHS frontline to help fund the fight against coronavirus. The players partnered up with NHS Charities Together to help distribute funds quickly to where they’re needed the most. Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was instrumental in setting it up and contacting the other club captains.


The tournament prize money of the ePremier League Invitational will be donated to the PlayersTogether initiative.

Gilmour will take on Watford‘s rapid forward Andre Gray tomorrow in the round of 16, while round one kicks off today at 6:00pm UK time. All the games will be streamed live on the social media platforms of the Premier League and Sky Sports social media platforms.
