Watch: Fikayo Tomori scores a 35-yard screamer into the top corner to open his Chelsea account in the Premier League match against Wolverhampton.
Chelsea are under a new regime. One that has forced them to rely on their youth instead of reinforcing by bringing in elite players. This has greatly affected Chelsea’s campaign this season. However, there have been positives from the transfer embargo as well.
Chelsea’s youth players, who would have otherwise been sent on loan, have now been called upon to lead the side in this dark phase. The Blues may not have had the results they would have liked but they have unearthed several players in the process who could be part of the team for years to come.
Youngsters like Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham have taken their chances with both hands and with proper guidance could end up being huge figures for the club. Another youngster has now taken the opportunity to announce his arrival.

Fikayo Tomori just did this for Chelsea. PING. 🚀
