Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed he will be without Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori for Tuesday’s important Champions League game against Lille.

Tomori missed training on Monday after picking up a hip injury.

Confirming Tomori’s injury, Lampard said: “He’s got a tiny strain around his hip area, and it’s been bothering him for a little bit, so he’s taken out of it for a few days.”

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud will also miss Tuesday’s Champion League game against Lille after missing training on Monday.

While the Blues will be without Tomori and Giroud, Lampard confirmed Antonio Rudiger is available for selection against Lille.
