Fikayo Tomori scored Chelsea’s first goal against Wolves and stepped out of defence to initiate our second goal in our 5-2 victory over Wolves at the Molineux on Saturday.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard gave his thoughts on Tomori’s performance against Wolves.

“I know he’s comfortable doing that from having him last year,” Lampard said about Tomori’s ability to bring the ball out of defence.

“I didn’t know he could stick it in the top corner. That was a surprise I am very happy with!

“At the start of last season he was already a good young player, but the confidence in him and the personality on the pitch is a great story from seeing it first-hand.

“I know he can step in because he has pace, he has recovery pace, he defended really well as well. I’m delighted for what today can hopefully do for him.

“It’s the same for all of them. If they keep playing with the same attitude and training every day like they have trained as young players then they are going to have fantastic careers, all of them. But they must sustain that.

“They should aspire and feel the opportunity is there if they deserve it, and they should see their team-mates doing really well and want to get in there.

“They are there because they deserve it. It’s important we also respect the experienced players have played a huge part. Wilian was fantastic today, absolutely brilliant.

“If we are going to be successful this season we can’t rely on the young boys, although at the minute they are doing a good job!”
