Frank Lampard has confirmed that Chelsea attacking duo Callum Hudson-Odoi and Hakim Ziyech are expected to missing for around two weeks due to their injuries.
Ziyech, 27, suffered a hamstring strain during the first half of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Leeds United last weekend and sat out the 1-1 draw with Russian outfit Krasnodar on Tuesday night.
Hudson-Odoi, meanwhile, also missed the Uefa Champions League clash on Tuesday night after having suffered an injury in training at Cobham training base.
Frank Lampard has now confirmed that both players will be missing for around two weeks as they undertake their rehabilitation at Chelsea’s Cobham training base.
It means that both players will be missing when Chelsea make the trip to Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.
Asked for an update on both Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi on Tuesday night, Lampard told his post-match news conference: ‘Both players are hopefully going to be missing for around two weeks.
‘They had scans yesterday and they’re showing it will be about two weeks so I think that’s positive, particularly with Hakim.
‘With Callum, we didn’t know what to expect because it was an injury he got in training a couple of days ago.’
Frank Lampard is now preparing his squad for their trip to face the Toffees as they look to continue their good form in the Premier League.
The west London club have won four of their last five games in the top flight and are currently in third place in the Premier League table.
