Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori will miss the upcoming Premier League clash with Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge later this weekend.

Nigerian-born England international centre back Fikayo Tomori will miss the home game against the Cherries after struggling to overcome a hip problem.

Fikayo Tomori missed the Champions League clash with French Ligue 1 side Lille in midweek as a result of the injury as Chelsea booked their place in the last 16 of the competition with a 2-1 win over their opponents in Group H.

He had earlier been named on the bench for the league game before the Lille match in the Champions League.

Fikayo Tomori sat on the bench throughout the Everton game last weekend as he was rested for the match which ended in a 3-1 away defeat for Chelsea.

Before the hip injury, Fikayo Tomori had formed a potent centre back partnership with Kurt Zouma at the heart of the Chelsea defence.

The recently capped England international is back at Chelsea this season after his successful loan spell at Derby County in the English Championship last season as the Rams missed out on promotion to the Premier League via the playoffs.

Derby County missed out to Aston Villa for the Premier League spot for this season.
