Chelsea fans assess Tomori’s performance following Derby County cup clash

Wednesday night’s EFL Cup clash between Chelsea and Derby County was much more than just a game from the Blues’ point of view.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard returned to Stamford Bridge for the first time since taking over as Derby manager.

It was an emotional reunion for the former midfielder, who won three Premier League titles and the Champions League during his 13-year spell at the club.

Not only were Chelsea fans welcoming back Lampard, they also got to see some of their young stars in action, even though they were playing for the opposing side.

Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount are currently on loan at Derby from Chelsea and both played on Wednesday night after being granted permission by the powers that be.

The pair played the full 90 minutes of the clash, which was an exciting one that ended in a 3-2 victory for Chelsea.

20-year-old Tomori had an unfortunate moment inside the first five minutes as he scored an own goal.

However, as the match progressed the young defender looked comfortable on the ball and impressed the watching Chelsea fans, some of whom took to Twitter to praise him.
