Frank Lampard has confirmed that Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech is set to make his comeback after sustaining a hamstring injury in an English Premier League game against Leeds United at Stamford Bridge.
The Moroccan player was forced off and replaced by Christian Pulisic in the match which saw the Blues won 3-1 after going down early through Patrick Bamford who beat Edouard Mendy to give his side the lead.
Chelsea has been given fitness boost ahead of their next Premier League game after confirmation of Callum Hudson-Odoi and Hakim Ziyech injuries not to be serious as earlier thought it would be for both players.
Frank Lampard confirmed the duo will be back soon after the Blues played a 1-1 draw against Krasnodar last night in the UEFA Champions League final group stages game.
Chelsea will be going up next against Everton during the weekend as they look to continue their fight in the top of the Premier League table which they currently sit at 3rd with two points behind the leaders Tottenham.
Hakim Ziyech will be in a race to gain full fitness so he can play the next game coming up after the Everton match as he needs more time to recover and be ready to play again.

“Both players are hopefully going to be fit for a week on Wednesday,” Lampard told a post-match media conference.
“They had scans which are showing the injuries will be two weeks, so that’s positive, particularly with Hakim.
“With Callum we didn’t know what to expect when he got injured in training a couple of days ago.”
