Tuchel gives verdict on Ziyech’s injury against Villarreal

Chelsea have suffered a setback ahead of the new Premier League season, with Hakim Ziyech having to be substituted with what appeared to be a dislocated shoulder.

Ziyech put the Blues ahead against Villarreal in the first half before he suffered a nasty-looking injury after he was caught by Juan Foyth.

After receiving lengthy treatment Ziyech was eventually helped off the pitch by a physio, with Christian Pulisic replacing him in the 43rd minute.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has now given an update on Ziyech’s injury against Villarreal.

Tuchel said: “If you take a player out during the first half, it is serious. It was unfortunate because he has been a very decisive player in the last games.”
