Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to question Gareth Southgate’s thinking behind the decision to leave Fikayo Tomori on the bench for England’s game against Kosovo – the England boss decided to select Tyrone Mings and Harry Maguire as his centre-back pairing.
The 21-year-old has started nine Premier League games for Chelsea this season under Frank Lampard, as well as four matches in the Champions League while he quietly goes about his business with some impressive performances.
Tomori is yet to make an appearance for the Three Lions senior team, and after the Chelsea fans on Twitter saw that he had been left on the bench once again by Southgate, they immediately took to their keyboards to question the England manager’s move.
One supporter said “what a disgrace” after seeing that Tomori had been left out, whereas another fan asked if Southgate had simply forgotten about the Blues academy graduate all together.
Let’s take a look at some more of the Twitter reaction…
Tomori not playing again, what a disgrace.
