Name: Fikayo Tomori
Made Senior Debut?: Yes (Chelsea)
Current National Level: England U21 International
Last Season Summary
2018/19 – Last season saw Tomori shoot to prominence on loan in the Championship as part of Frank Lampard’s promotion hunting Derby County. Tomori was ever present starting 43 matches in the league, even grabbing a goal and an assist, but it was his defensive prowess which wowed the onlookers. Only being dribbled past 0.5 times per game, making 3.9 clearances per game, making 1.6 interceptions, and making nearly 60% of his tackles, he has certainly given himself a nice platform to build on.
Footy Files expectations this Season
2019/20 – This season, training with the Chelsea first team, and with Frank Lampard at them helm, Tomori may just get more game time than expected. We were thinking another loan may be on the cards to a Premiership side, but with Cahill, and now David Luiz out the way, the depth a centre back is relatively shallow, perfect for Tomori to step in when called upon.
