Chelsea are close to tying Fiyako Tomori down to a new contract.

Tomori has emerged as a genuine first-team player this season after loan spells with Derby County, Brighton and Hull City.

He has made 16 appearances across all competitions for Frank Lampard's side.

And now the club are set to reward the England international with a new contract, claims Goal, who says the talks have been undergoing for several months.

The Blues are making a concerted effort to tie down their young talent who have thrived this season under Lampard.

Wenger explains how Arsenal slipped away: It became inhuman

Wenger explains how Arsenal slipped away: It became inhuman

Arsene Wenger has admitted he felt Arsenal 'slip away' from his grasp as the game modernised rapidly at the start of this century.

Wenger left the club after 22 years in the summer of 2018, with many supporters happy to see the back of him after a number of unsuccessful years.

And the Frenchman has lamented how the club's expansion into the modern era took away the 'human' touch of club management.

Wenger, who won three Premier League titles with the Gunners, told So Foot: "These days, the size of the clubs sometimes stops them from keeping the culture of performance.

"When I arrived at Arsenal, we were 80 people. When I left, there were 750, and when there's 750 people in one organisation, each one thinks about saving themselves rather than improving.

"I think there's a degree of reflection for me: how do you keep that desire to perform? Up to about 150 people, I think you can stay human. You know the name of the wife, of the kid of such and such.

"My regret at Arsenal is to have gone from human size to inhuman, with a larger administrative weight. Everything accelerated. Ten years ago, you'd see a guy who was good, you'd get him in, give him a tracksuit and he'd be a part of the team.

"That's long gone. Now, if you want a new physio, you go through 300 applications. That's how, at Arsenal, bit by bit, I felt the club slip away from me."

Liverpool advance after second-half burst defeats RB Salzburg

Liverpool advance after second-half burst defeats RB Salzburg

Liverpool have qualified for the Champions League knockout stages with a win over RB Salzburg in Austria.

The Reds needed only a point to qualify, but the win has now put them top of Group E ahead of Napoli, who also beat Genk on Tuesday.

But Jurgen Klopp's side were tested in the opening stages against a young and spirited Salzburg outfit, who almost shared the spoils at Anfield in their first meeting.

Alisson was forced into making six saves in the first-half, with both sides mustering nine shots on target in total, the most in a Champions League group stage match since 2004.

Scores remained tied at 0-0 at the break, but Naby Keita broke the deadlock after 58 minutes to score his second goal in as many matches.

It only took 100 seconds for Mohamed Salah to double Liverpool's advantage, with the Egyptian scoring from an impossible angle inside the box.

Liverpool now turn their attention to Saturday's clash with Watford at Anfield where they will look to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Klopp explains why Salah baffled him in Liverpool’s win over Salzburg

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admitted he had “no idea how” Mo Salah scored his goal after missing earlier “sitters” in their 2-0 win over RB Salzburg.

The Egyptian scored from what seemed an impossibly tight angle having missed a number of much simpler chances.

Salzburg were a match for the Reds in a very even first half, but the Champions League holders showed their class in the second period as Naby Keita’s header put them in the lead before Salah sealed the victory.

Klopp admitted to a tense first half, but was happy with how his side played, particularly in the second half.

He told BT Sport: “What a team. What an effort. It was a tough game.

“They started so direct. They did so many smart things. We were ready to defend it. It was a very tense game.

“In the second half they couldn’t cope with the intensity. We scored two wonderful goals. We could have scored six or seven which is crazy. We won the group, we won the game, all good.”

“First half, we had to put a proper shift in. When we had the ball we had sitters and didn’t score. Then Mo [Salah] scored the most difficult situation of the whole night – he scored that goal.

“I have no idea [how]. With his quality, how he didn’t score one or two of the others I have no clue.

“So many sensational performances. This kind of attitude, it’s great. A tricky one but we did it.”
