Fikayo Tomori is starting to prove his worth at the very top level with Chelsea.
Entrusted by manager Frank Lampard in the heart of the Blues defence, the 21-year-old scored his first senior goal for the club in the 5-2 win over Wolves last weekend, firing a long-range effort into the top corner at Molineux.
So far this season, Tomori has registered an average rating of 7.66/10 from WhoScored, while also making 3 tackles, 4 interceptions and 1.5 clearances per game for the west Londoners.
He is rapidly becoming a fan favourite at the Bridge, as shown in the Tweets below, with many Chelsea supporters excited about what the future holds with the young England U-21 international heading up their back-line alongside the returning Antonio Rudiger.
This weekend, Tomori will face his toughest test yet – dealing with Liverpool’s front-three; the front-three that devastate almost everything in their path on a weekly basis.
Should he pass that test, though, these ecstatic Blues fans will be given even more to smile about, including the fan who compared him to a former Chelsea player who made 225 appearances for the club, William Gallas…
Fikayo is an absolute gem 💙⚽️🔥

Never doubted him for one second

The way he plays reminds me of Gallas a bit. Quick, agile, calm, and not the biggest but has a good leap.

And far better than Zouma with EPL experience
