Chelsea have blooded in some really exciting youngsters this summer.
Frank Lampard has invested his trust in youth and the likes of Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount have really taken it with both their hands.
Tomori was supposed to be one of the young defenders floating around the first team squad when the season began. Chelsea had the likes of David Luiz, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger and Kurt Zouma.
However, the 21 year old Englishman has broken through the ranks and is now the first defender on the team sheet for the Blues.
In an interview given to Versus, Tomori excitedly recalls how happy he was to have won a tussle with Mo Salah, a moment which sent Stamford Bridge into jubilation!
“I remember in that game my dad was in the crowd and I made a tackle on Salah where I went firm, but fair, won the ball and everyone at Stamford Bridge was cheering!
I remember looking to this little corner of the ground where I know my parents sit. I just looked up and saw my dad cheering – that was a crazy moment for me.
“I remember him going on last season about how good Salah, Mane and Firmino all were in the Champions League and then in that moment, I was like “I’ve just tackled Mo Salah and he just saw it”…yeah, that was a good moment!”
