The Chelsea player who is worth the risk for Frank Lampard to start against Wolves
Going into the final Premier League game of the season, Frank Lampard is still looking for his ideal Chelsea defence.
Formations have been swapped, players have been switched and Lampard has seemed to use everything at his disposal to sort out the issues.
However, with one game to go there is still a huge problem for the Blues at the back, with Chelsea having conceded 54 Premier League goals, the most out of any inside the top 11 clubs.
Against Liverpool on Wednesday night, Lampard went for three at the back as it had worked well in the FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester United.
However, it didn’t work against the Reds and the defence often got overrun and struggled to get a grip of their dynamic forward line at times.
But there is one player who has been out of the spotlight for some time but who could be worth the risk to bring back.
Fikayo Tomori has had a difficult 2020, with the 22-year-old having featured in just one Premier League game since the turn of the year.
The England international has had a real breakthrough year with the Blues, having previously being on loan with Hull City and Derby County.
Tomori was a real feature of the early season side, impressing on several occasions in the early running of the campaign.
However, in January his game time really changed, with a lack of minutes coming in the league.
The centre-back started the FA Cup games against Nottingham Forest and Hull City, scoring in the latter, but his only Premier League start has come in the 2-2 draw at Bournemouth on February 29.
When the Premier League restarted, Tomori was not available for the opening few weeks due to injury, however he has now been back in training and an unused substitute.
With the deficiencies still in the defence, it could well be work the risk for Lampard to bring Tomori back into the side for the crunch game against Wolves.
Tomori had a superb afternoon when the two teams last met on September 14, with the defender netting a stunning goal to mark his first strike for the club.
In his Premier League return in February, it wasn’t the best afternoon for the defender who struggled against the Cherries.
However, Tomori will be champing at the bit to be back in the starting XI, and giving him a shot would not be the worst idea for Lampard to try.
The position would likely be on the left of a back three, like he played at Molineux, or replacing Antonio Rudiger, who has struggled at times since the restart.
