AC Milan star Fikayo Tomori was in action last night against Liverpool in the Champions League – and some Chelsea fans on Twitter raved about the display of their ex-player.
Italian giants Milan suffered a 3-2 defeat on Wednesday night in a Champions League group stage thriller at Anfield.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson ended up scoring the winner with his half-volley from the edge of the box.
Tomori, 23, was unfortunate to deflect the ball into his own net for an own goal early in the first half. However, the defender looked very impressive afterwards.
The English centre-back made a string of tackles, interceptions, and blocks as Milan were asked to defend against a Liverpool storm on Merseyside.
He ended up on the losing side but caught the eye in a positive way.
Chelsea fans regret Fikayo Tomori sale
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media were blown away by Tomori’s midweek European performance.
The Blues loaned him out to the San Siro last season before Milan decided to take up their £25million option to buy him permanently this summer.
He’s a highly rated centre half to come out of the Chelsea academy, who even played in the first team at Stamford Bridge during the 2019/20 campaign under ex-manager Frank Lampard.
It’s great to see him now thriving in Italy, despite the fact he’s not a part of the group in West London.
Trevoh Chalobah is a young centre-half from the Blues academy that has stepped up into the first team in his place.
Here are some Chelsea fans reacting to last night’s display from Tomori:
