Chelsea have struggled defensively this season, with the likes of David Luiz and even Cesar Azpilicueta not enjoying the best of times as of late. Chelsea have been winning, of course, but they’ve been very lucky not to concede more goals – given just how error-prone the defence has been so far this term.
Moving forward, then, that’s likely to be an area that the Blues look to improve, but perhaps they won’t have to spend big to do that.
In fact, perhaps Chelsea could have their ideal defensive solution within the club already, with on-loan defender Fikayo Tomori impressing over at Derby. The Englishman turned out for the Rams on Tuesday night and played a starring role as they defeated Jose Mourinho’s Man Utd at Old Trafford.
It was a brilliant performance from all concerned at Derby, but Tomori, in particular, looked good.
Unsurprisingly, many Chelsea fans caught wind of the performance, and it’s fair to say that they are feeling very good about Tomori. In fact, many are saying that he was just as good as Mason Mount.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…

There are so many young Chelsea players out on loan to keep an eye on. Mason Mount has been stealing the headlines at Derby, but Fikayo Tomori also looking very impressive for the Rams against Man U. The usual question applies. Will such promise lead to a career at the Bridge?

Fikayo Tomori is not bad. #CFC

Can we just take into account how incredible Fikayo Tomori was as well?
For someone who struggled at Hull last season, he sure did give Lukaku a run for his money. Absolutely class from the lad.

Tomori played very well indeed did a good job on Lukaku and in general very calm on the ball

– Somethings never change Frank Lampard still winning on penalties.
– So happy for Frank and Jody what a job they have done at Derby.
– Outstanding performances from the Chelsea boys Mason Mount was running the midfield. Tomori had Lukaku in his pocket all game.
