Hakim Ziyech failed to make the squad for Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Moroccan started the goalless draw against Wolves before he was replaced by Mason Mount and didn’t even make the bench for the game against Burnley.

Explaining Ziyech’s absence against Burnley, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said: “He has been in a bit of overload since five weeks so he has a bit of a risk of getting injured if he plays more than say 30 minutes.

“For that, we decided to take a break now to go out of the risk zone.”

After returning from injury in January, Ziyech has played in 6 games already during January.
