‘Excellent’ ‘Really Good’ ‘Top Talents’ Chelsea Fans On Social Media Rate U21 Stars’ Performances In France Defeat

Three Chelsea defenders started England’s 2-1 defeat to France in the Under 21 Championships last night.

Jake Clarke-Salter captained the side, while Fikayo Tomori and Jay Dasilva also played in defence. Both Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham came off the bench.

Fans on Twitter believe the Chelsea starlets performed well for the most part:

Out of the three that started, Tomori is the likeliest to get games next season in the first team, especially if Frank Lampard is appointed as manager.

The 21-year-old was Derby’s player of the year, playing under Lampard last campaign, and the defender could be afforded match time due to the centre-back options at the club.

David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen will likely be in the frame for starting places while Kurt Zouma will be hoping to get minutes following his return from a loan spell at Everton.

Tomori would likely be the next on the list, and with Lampard clearly a big fan of the player, we could well see more of him in a Chelsea shirt.
