EPL: Lampard names Chelsea’s first-choice defender this season

1 min

Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, has identified 21-year-old star, Fikayo Tomori, as the Blues’ number one defender this season.

Lampard said this on Friday ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Brighton on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

According to him, Tomori has been impressive for Chelsea so far this season.

”I know Arsenal for a long time have played young players in some competitions. I only want to speak to ourselves, you can’t walk away from a transfer ban,” Lampard told reporters at his pre-match press conference.

”There is competition in there, Tomori is now number one or two as it stands. He is really playing well. Age isn’t a huge story.”
