“Very sad” – Some Chelsea fans speculate about Tomori falling out after another absence

Fikayo Tomori has not been in Chelsea’s first team for some time now, and today he didn’t even make the bench, with Andreas Christensen preferred as backup to the starting pair of Antonio Rudiger and Kurt Zouma while Thiago Silva rests.

The fact that this time a year ago the defender was first choice and flourishing has lead some to question whether something untoward has gone on behind the scenes.

It’s pretty pointless speculation in any case – we just don’t know, and until we find something out there’s no need to accuse him of anything without basis. He seems like a great kid and Frank Lampard has always been a big fan. Until we hear for certain otherwise, let’s assume it’s tactical from Lamps. As one Tweeter wrote – it’s “very sad” that the academy product isn’t in the team any more.

Either way, what is certain is that he will be loaned out as soon as the window opens.
