“Firmino & Salah are the toughest players I’ve faced”

Fikayo Tomori says Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah are the toughest players he has faced so far in the premier league.

The English International returned to the premier league after a season with Derby County in the Championship and he says facing the Liverpool stars has made him a better player.

Tomori who has made 22 appearances in all competitions this season for Chelsea told SkySports about life in the premier league: "It has been different for me this season, just because it is the Premier League and it is a step up. You have to be more focused and prepared, always alert," 

"In the Championship you have a lot of different strikers - some love it in the air or like to go in behind. But then I'm playing against [Roberto] Firmino and he's dropping deep into midfield. Things happen a lot faster and mistakes are punished more harshly.

"Firmino was probably the most difficult [to play against] - along with Salah. Every time they got the ball, I was thinking, 'This is a challenge but this is where I want to be - this is a chance to prove that I can play at this level.'"
