Against Morecambe, in the FA Cup 3rd round, we got a rare glimpse of a defender who it was once thought would go on to become a mainstay of our first team.
For 23-year-old Fikayo Tomori, this season has been a struggle with appearances in the first team being as rare as hens’ teeth, in stark contrast to last season, with Frank Lampard preferring to utilise a centre-back pairing of Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma.
Against Morecambe, although it was probably to be expected, Tomori looked as assured as usual leaving us to ponder over why he does not feature more.
However, with the January transfer window open, the question is being asked whether Tomori could be going out on loan.
With Andreas Christensen having picked up a knee injury, Lampard has to decide whether he can cope with a Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma partnership aided only by a back-up of Antonio Rudiger. Is that sufficient or can he afford to let Tomori leave to get regular football elsewhere?
It is a difficult decision!
Meanwhile, lurking in the media, this time courtesy of The Chronicle, is the ongoing suggestion that Newcastle could very well be Tomori’s next stop off point.
But if you were in Frank’s shoes, what would you do with Fikayo Tomori?
Would you sell him, loan him, or keep him at Stamford Bridge?
