Chelsea will be without key defender Fikayo Tomori for the visit of French Ligue 1 side Lille in the Champions League.

The recently capped England international will miss the Lille game according to his manager Frank Lampard.

His absence for the crucial Champions League clash with Lille in Group H was confirmed by Chelsea manager Frank Lampard during his pre-match press conference on Monday ahead of the game.

Fikayo Tomori is said to have a slight injury problem and that he will be fit for the Premier League game at home to Bournemouth at the weekend.

The Chelsea defender has been troubled by a hip injury in recent days and that led to his omission from the Blues starting XI for the Everton game in the Premier League at the weekend.

Fikayo Tomori has forged a potent center-back partnership with Kurt Zouma at the heart of the Chelsea defence and he was sorely missed during the Everton game which ended in a 3-1 defeat for his team.

His spot in the starting XI was taken by Danish international Andreas Christensen, and he is expected to continue to surprise him in the Lille game which Chelsea must win to confirm their place in the knockout stage.
