Fikayo played his first game for Chelsea in many months, as the Blues boss introduced the young defender following the red card to Andreas Christensen.

Tomori put in a good shift in the game, and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has sent a message to the 22-year-old, hoping he has his trust now.

Lampard said: “I think Tomori did really well, he hasn’t played for a while and it shows his fitness with the rest of the squad, and I was delighted with him,’ said Lampard.

“I hope he feels the trust in him. He showed that last year, starting last season’s pre-season as fifth centre-back in most people’s eyes and then playing 20-plus games for Chelsea, so I have got full confidence in him.”

Tomori got a surprise selection to the squad, in place of the more experienced Antonio Rudiger, who hasn’t shown his best form since recovering from injury last season.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard had gone on to sign veteran defender Thiago Silva to help his young side this season, and he currently has five centre-backs at his disposal.
