Derby’s 3-2 defeat away to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup fourth round on Wednesday night was certainly an eventful occasion for Fikayo Tomori.
The 20-year-old is spending the season on loan at Derby from Chelsea, but inadvertently put the ball into his own net in just the fifth minute at Stamford Bridge.
Davide Zappacosta’s cross deflected in off Tomori’s standing leg as Chelsea took the lead.

Chelsea went on to win the game in an enthralling encounter, with Tomori left dejected at the final whistle.
As reported by The Sun, Tomori was consoled by David Luiz, who had entered the fray as a substitute, with the Brazilian providing the youngster with some much-needed words of encouragement.

No stranger to scoring an own goal himself, Luiz’s actions will undoubtedly be hugely appreciated by both Tomori and Chelsea supporters, with the Brazilian demonstrating his leadership qualities.
After Tomori’s mistake, Derby levelled through Jack Marriott only for Richard Keogh to score another own goal.
Martyn Waghorn’s effort saw Derby equalise again but Cesc Fabregas scored what proved to be the decisive goal before half-time.
Derby manager Frank Lampard received an excellent reception, but like Tomori and Mason Mount, also on loan from Chelsea, the game ended in disappointment for the Rams.
