Frank Lampard’s words to Tomori
Fikayo Tomori has not had much Premier League action in 2020, with the 2-2 draw at Bournemouth being his first minutes in the league for Chelsea this calendar year.
The 22-year-old had only played two FA Cup matches since December, so it was no surprise that he was a little rusty at the beginning of the game.
On a couple of occasions, the centre-back was slow on the ball and he got caught out, with Philip Billing almost capitalising on a big mistake.

Frank Lampard was looking for more from his players after a slow start, and he made it clear to Tomori by calling on him to move the ball quicker.
Tomori struggled in the 90 minutes, however, and it might be a performance which sees him back on the bench.
Josh King fumes
The winger had a decent game for the Cherries on the left, getting at Reece James and Cesar Azpilicueta on several occasions and using his pace well.
He even backed it up with a neat finish to get the home side a shock lead in just a matter of minutes of equalising.
However, King was obviously not happy to be substituted for Junior Stanislas, with the forward shaking his head profuously.
Eddie How stopped him as he walked to the bench to explain his decision, but King was obvious not best pleased.
Storm Jorge blows a gale
The UK has been hit with a couple of big storms over the past few weeks, and it has happened again with Storm Jorge blowing over.
For much of the game, the sun was shining on the south coast and, while the wind was high, it was still a pretty pleasant day.
But like some pathetic fallacy, the weather matched the mood of Chelsea’s squad as the rain battered down on the players.
It couldn’t have summed up what the Blues were going through better, but the sun did come out again when Alonso bagged the equaliser.
