CHELSEA loanee Fikayo Tomori produced a sensational tackle for AC Milan against Roma as he continued to impress in Serie A.
The 23-year-old defender, who started ahead of club captain Alessio Romagnoli, dove in front of Lorenzo Pellegrini to deny the Roma midfielder what looked to be a certain goal.
AC Milan went on to edge out Roma 2-1 thanks to a penalty from Franck Kessie and a second half winner from Ante Rebic.
The victory saw Milan close the gap to rivals Inter to four points at the top of the Serie A table.
And Tomori shone as a bright spark for Stefano Pioli's side as he made more passes (60) and made more clearances (six) than any other player on the pitch.
The English defender has already made seven appearances for Milan since joining from Chelsea in the January window.
Speaking to Sky about the possibility of making his loan move to Milan a permanent one, technical director Paolo Maldini said: "Tomori is a good talent and we have a buy-option clause.
"The price is very high. AC Milan will decide at the end of this season and we will discuss it with Chelsea's board."

The price Chelsea are asking for is reportedly £26million, a fee which could see Milan put off signing Tomori.
Former Blues boss Frank Lampard did not favour Tomori as he featured just four times in the 2020-21 campaign before going out on loan.
However, it remains to be seen whether new manager Thomas Tuchel will want to bed him into his team next season.
Chelsea have looked defensively solid under the German so far, conceding just two goals in nine games.
