Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has come out to say that Hakim Ziyech is ready to make his debut for the club.
He, however, revealed that Edouard Mendy will miss Chelsea’s clash with Southampton.
According to him, he is excited to see Ziyech play for his new team even if he is not fit to start any game yet.
He added that he expects Hakim to participate for some minutes vs Southampton and hopefully make an impact for the team.
His words, “Mendy won’t be fit for the match tomorrow, we hope the injury’s not too long,” Lampard at his pre-match press conference.
“Thiago Silva after his trip and back, he’s not unfit but he’s not ready to play the game because of the travelling and the game that he played. So he won’t be in the squad.
“Ben Chilwell is in the squad, so he’s got over some of the feeling he had that took him out of the England squad around the injury. He’s had it for a while now. Christian Pulisic is in the squad and fit to play, Hakim Ziyech in the squad, he’s not fit to start but fit to participate for some minutes we hope.”
