Chelsea face Bayern Munich in the Champions League Round of 16 tonight and lots of fans want to see Fikayo Tomori return to the starting line-up.
The Blues host Bayern at Stamford Bridge in the first leg as Frank Lampard takes charge of his first European knock-out game as the club’s manager.
With Chelsea playing the role of hosts first, it will be important to reduce the risk of conceding as much as possible, with the away goals rule a key factor in Europe.
Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen have started together in the last six Premier League games, conceding eight goals.
Meanwhile, Tomori hasn’t featured for the Blues in the league since being withdrawn on the hour mark against Arsenal in December.
Bayern have scored more goals than any other team in this season’s competition (24) and Robert Lewandowski and co. will be wanting to continue in the same vein.
These Chelsea fans want to see Tomori brought back into the fray tonight though, although some are convinced it’s unlikely to happen on such a big occasion…
