Chelsea youngster Fikayo Tomori was included in the team to go on pre-season tour of Asia and the 19-year-old defender has been delighted with the experience so far.

He has been involved in all three games so far and has put on a good show in the right wing-back position.

He told the official Chelsea website how much this means to him.

“This team are the Premier League champions so it’s good to be involved in the trip and to have the opportunity to experience a different culture,” he said.

The youngster has a chance to score from a counter against Arsenal but David Ospina denied him what would have been a lovely goal.

When asked how it felt to play in both of the matches we have played on the trip so far, most recently against Bayern Munich last night when he replaced Marcos Alonso, he said: “It was a great experience and I enjoyed it because I lined up alongside some great players and against strong opposition.

“It would have been nice if I’d scored the chance I had in the Arsenal game but it was a great result and it was really nice that the younger players were given a chance to prove themselves as well.”
