Manager Frank Lampard says he still has faith in Fikayo Tomori following his first appearance in Chelsea's 2-0 loss to Liverpool over the weekend.


England defender Tomori made his first appearance in seven months as he came off the bench in the second half of the clash against the Reds after Andreas Christensen saw a red card for his rugby tackle on as Sadio Mane, who eventually scored a brace at Stamford Bridge.


Tomori has been heavily linked with a loan move to Everton in recent weeks following the arrival of free-agent Thiago Silva from Paris Saint-Germain.


“I think Tomori did really well, he hasn’t played for a while and it shows his fitness with the rest of the squad, and I was delighted with him,” said Lampard.


“I hope he feels the trust in him. He showed that last year, starting last season’s pre-season as fifth centre-back in most people’s eyes and then playing 20-plus games for Chelsea, so I have got full confidence in him.”
