Tomori, Lampard's golden boy who broke Diego Costa's nose

Together with Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori is one of Frank Lampard's 'golden boys'. Chelsea ban on signing any players has opened the door for young talents, who are responding quite well to the challenge of playing in the 'Blues' first team.

Three years ago, the young central defender collided with Chelsea's Diego Costa. In training, Tomori broke the now-Atletico Madrid striker's nose. He had to undergo treatment and play with a protective mask for a few weeks.

"Of course I remember it. I was still in school and didn't know I had done it in training. Nothing happened... He didn't give it back to me", he recalled in declarations with 'Metro'.

"We both jumped up to head the ball, I had to throw the ball back and he tried to score. It hit the back of my head and broke his nose. I didn't know what I had done until the following day, when all of the journalists were there," he explained.

Now, 21-years-old, Tomori is a fixed part of Lampard's defence. He was under his orders at Derby County, where he played 55 official matches and 54 as a starter. This year he has already played in eight games and has even scored a goal.
