Nigerian defender Fikayo Tomori has admitted that the right wing-back role is new to him and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been schooling him on what is expected in that position.

Tomori, who is primarily a central defender, has been training as a wing-back since the start of pre-season, and has been introduced as a right wing-back in all Chelsea’s pre-season games so far after coming off the bench.

”I’ve never actually played right wing-back before but I played right-back quite a lot in my earlier years,” Tomori told chelseafc.com.

”The manager has made me aware of what’s required in the role; where to be, where to run and where to pass the ball, which has made it a lot easier for me.

”I’m enjoying it and hopefully whenever I get a chance I can make an impression.”

Tomori helped England with the Fifa U20 World Cup for the first time in their history this summer, and was partnered by Chelsea teammate Jake Clarke-Salter in central defense.
