Chelsea Boss Frank Lampard has revealed that Hakim Ziyech won’t be available for Chelsea’s clash against Arsenal on Boxing Day.
The Former Ajax star sustained an hamstring injury in the 3-1 win over Leeds United and he has missed The Blues’ last three Premier League matches.
“Ziyech won’t be fit for Arsenal… he’s got another muscle injury. You have to wait for it to recover,” Lampard told a news conference on Wednesday.
Chilwell and James both suffered knocks in the past week and are doubtful for the clash at the Emirates Stadium as well as the visit of Aston Villa two days later.
“I can’t give you an answer at the moment. I’m not sure if they’ll be fit for either game,” Lampard added.
Arsenal have failed to win their last four matches at the Emirates Stadium following a poor start to the season with just four points above the relegation zone.
