Frank Lampard has shared a ‘positive’ update on the fitness of Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi and has confirmed both players are expected to miss two weeks with hamstring injuries.
Ziyech was substituted during the first half of last weekend’s 3-1 win over Leeds at Stamford Bridge, whilst Hudson-Odoi suffered his own hamstring problem in training ahead of last night’s 1-1 draw with Krasnodar in the Champions League.
Lampard has revealed that both players have since been assessed and has confirmed each is expected to miss around two weeks of action, with both Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi expected to return ahead of a congested festive period.
“Both players are hopefully going to be missing for around two weeks,” Lampard told his post match press conference. “They had scans yesterday and they’re showing it will be about two weeks so I think that’s positive, particularly with Hakim.
“With Callum, we didn’t know what to expect because it was an injury he got in training a couple of days ago.”
Chelsea are currently unbeaten in 14 games in all competitions and next travel to face Everton this weekend, before a midweek schedule in the Premier League sees the west London side face Wolves at Molineux on Tuesday night.
