The season started on a bright note for Chelsea youngster Fikayo Tomori as he didn’t take too long to break into the Chelsea team and even scored a stunning goal in our 5-2 win over Wolves.

However, Tomori has now lost his place in the Chelsea team as Blues boss Frank Lampard has recently settled for a centre-back partnership of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

Tomori has made just three starts in 2020, with his start against Bournemouth last weekend his first Premier League appearance since the win at Arsenal in late December.

Tomori has spoken of his current frustrations and has vowed to fight for his shirt and break into the team.

“It’s been a difficult period for me, but I’m working hard to try and get back in the team,” stressed Tomori.

“There is a lot of competition for places, not just in my position, so there are going to be disappointed people when they’re not playing.

“Throughout the whole season the manager has said if you train well and show why you should be in the team, he will put you in, and then it’s up to you to try and stay in the team.

“There have been many examples where people have come in and done well. Training is competitive and intense, and then when you get on the pitch someone is banging on the door which keeps everyone on their toes.

“I’m just staying positive, and in the grand scheme of things the most important thing is that the team wins.”
