Fikayo Tomori made his Champions League debut in the 1-0 loss to Valencia on Sunday.

The 21 year old played in a back three alongside Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen.

Tomori had a good game against Valencia and he earned Chelsea a penalty after Daniel Wass blocked his header with his hand but Ross Barkley failed to convert it three minutes from the end of regulation time.

Speaking about making his Champions League debut, Tomori told Chelsea’s official website: “Obviously, it is the biggest competition in the world and to be playing for Chelsea at the Bridge, to make my debut, it is something I wanted to do, I dreamt of and so I am very proud.”

On Chelsea’s loss to Valencia, he added: “There are top teams in the Champions League and it is always the fine margins, you know if you switch off for a split second those are the kind of moments that can turn the game.

“We are disappointed but we still have five games to go and we have to focus on Sunday as well.”

He added: “That’s what football is all about and that is the good thing about being in a big club, having so many games and you can move on from the last one if you ever have a negative result.

“So definitely, we move on to Sunday.”
