Tomori has made 21 appearances in all competitions for the Blues this season.

The defender has helped Chelsea attain a top four spot in the Premier League before the coronavirus pandemic brought football  to halt.

But it has not always been easy for the 22-year-old who Chelsea manager Frank Lampard had signed on loan at Derby last campaign.

Tomori admits his step up from Championship to Premier League has been noticeable,  insisting he's noticed tougher challenges since his promotion to the English top-flight league.

The England international is also convince enough that Liverpool's forwards have posed him the greatest challenge so far.

"It has been different for me this season, just because it is the Premier League and it is a step up," told Sky Sports.

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'."
