Chelsea Football Club manager, Frank Lampard has released the latest update on winger, Hakim Ziyech’s injury following his side’s 1-1 draw against Brighton on Saturday’s friendly.
The Moroccan international who had an immediate impact with a role in Timo Werner’s first goal for Chelsea against Brighton, suffered a potential injury after the break at the Falmer Stadium.
Ziyech needed treatment from Chelsea physicians as he seemingly felt the effects of a poor challenge beforehand just eight minutes into the second half.
Meanwhile, he received treatment as he stayed down before hobbling off the pitch gingerly, with Conor Gallagher on in his place.
While providing an update on Ziyech’s injury after the game, Lampard said;
“He has a bit of a knock on his knee, a little of a small twist which we will have to assess.“Hopefully, it is not too bad.”
However, Hakim Ziyech will hope to recover fully to assist Chelsea to victory when they play Brighton on September 14 in their first 2020/21 Premier League fixture.
