Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed Chelsea will be without Hakim Ziyech for Saturday’s Premier League game against Arsenal at the Emirates.

The Moroccan had returned to training last week but Lampard revealed he isn’t fit enough to play just yet.

“No, he won’t be fit for Arsenal,” Lampard said ahead of the London derby.

“He had a knee injury at the start of the season and he now has a muscle injury.

“You have to wait to recover. It’s not a long-term concern and we hope to have him back in the next week or so.”
