Fikayo Tomori is a Chelsea player today! However, such was not the case always.
Earlier in his playing days he had played for the Tigers and hence it was naturally a proud moment for the defender to be able to score against them – even more as it turned out to be the winner for the night!
However, Chelsea were brushed a lot closer than they expected.
“In the first half we probably could have killed the game, but we didn’t take our chances,” Tomori said.
“We said at half-time that because we hadn’t taken our chances we had to be solid at the back, try to score another one, but we need to be more clinical.
“I think my goal came at a good time, but it got a bit difficult towards the end when they scored the free-kick.
“It’s a one-off game and teams want to go for it. They were never going to stop and we knew that.
“If we’d got a third goal it would have been a lot easier for us but we didn’t manage to get that so we had to ride it out.”
