Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has come out to say that the club is missing Hakim Ziyech amid the recent poor run of results. Lampard recently revealed that his team must find a new source of creativity when the former Ajax man is not playing.
According to him, he is very eager to have Ziyech back because he is very effective for his team in terms of creation and goals.
He added that Chelsea was very fluid until Hakim got injured, and he hopes to have him fit the clash vs Manchester City.
His words, “Not a coincidence. We can’t rely completely on him. He was very effective of us in terms of creation and goals,”
“It helped, we were very fluid until he got injured. We want him back. There’s a possiblity he could be fit for [Sunday’s game against] Manchester City if it goes ahead. He’s close.”
“I liked his performance and his range of passing in the first half. Some of his movement and touches were great but we want to see end product and for him to go one-on-one like at Arsenal,”
“That’s the level of top wingers in the Premier League. He has the capabilities, that will be the next stage for him.”
“It’s a draw against a good team. Our performance was good and we deserved to win. We’ve come through a difficult patch. We saw the attitude of the team today. The table is still tight and we remain close. Today I saw some good signs I like.”
