Hakim Ziyech is yet to start a game for the Blues since his summer arrival from Ajax. The Moroccan international suffered an injury during preseason and has made just two appearances from the bench since his recovery.
According to Ziyech, he will make his first Chelsea start soon but insists the most important thing now is getting back the rhythm having not played since March.
“It can’t be soon enough but realistically I have been out for a while,” Ziyech said.
“Last season ended early so I haven’t played for a while. The timing of the injury was unlucky.
“It is now about getting the rhythm back but it might take some time. I hope to be there ASAP.”
