Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori targets long FA Cup run

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori is eager for a long FA Cup run.

The 22-year-old scored the winner in Saturday's 2-1 win over Hull which saw the Blues safely into the hat for tonight's fifth-round draw.

"Chelsea have a rich history in the FA Cup," said Tomori. "With the gaffer (Frank Lampard) being in there we went to a lot of finals at Wembley.

"We have seen Chelsea lift it many times with (Antonio) Conte and in the past as well. Of course, it is Chelsea and we want to fight for every competition.

"There's a trophy to play for at the end of it. When you step on the pitch we are not thinking this is just an FA Cup game or this is a Champions League game.

"We want to win. Every game is the same. Going into the FA Cup games we want to do the same thing. We want to try to go as far as we can."
