Chelsea left-back Wayne Bridge looks certain to miss the start of the Barclays Premier League season after undergoing hip surgery in the United States.

The Blues are on tour in America and after training alongside his team-mates in Los Angeles, Bridge was referred to a specialist who recommended an operation.

"Wayne Bridge has been struggling with a right hip problem for the last few weeks," club doctor Alex Nieper told Chelsea TV. "We decided while we were out here for him to see a world-renowned hip surgeon who agreed he did need hip surgery due to a cartilage defect."
