Chelsea defender should be set for run in the team after man of the match performance

Fikayo Tomori was one of Chelsea’s most impressive players this season, until the Christmas period.

His introduction to the team in the Autumn was what really sparked a revival in our fortunes and helped Frank Lampard’s team pick up some of the wins in the lead-up to Christmas that put us in such a strong position to absorb our recent bad results.

At some point along the way he lost the faith of his manager however, and Antonio Rudiger has been undisputed first choice since his return from injury.

That’s left Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen battling with Tomori for that second slot in the back 4, and all 3 have had a turn.

After his match-winning performance against Hull City at the weekend, we hope Tomori gets another run now. WhoScored gave him the highest rating in the game against the side from Yorkshire, a 7.9 built on defensive solidity and a clever run and powerful header for the goal.
