Ziyech & Chilwell reportedly on course to feature for Chelsea vs Southampton

Chelsea vs Southampton

Chelsea’s first game back following the international break sees the Blues welcome Southampton to Stamford Bridge this coming Saturday.

The Londoners head into the tie in rather patchy form.

Granted, their last outing did see them put Crystal Palace to the sword by four goals to nil.

But prior to that, Chelsea had been knocked out of the League Cup, held to a 3-3 draw vs a struggling West Brom side and beaten 2-0 by Liverpool.

As for Southampton, they too have had a rather inconsistent start to the campaign.

The Saints currently sit 11th in the league having won two and lost two of their opening four league outings this term.

Hakim Ziyech & Ben Chilwell expected to feature for Chelsea vs Southampton

Ahead of the Southampton clash on Saturday, Chelsea look to have been handed a boost on the injury front.

Said news has been provided by Simon Johnson of the Athletic, who claims that Hakim Ziyech is finally expected to make his competitive Chelsea debut this weekend.

Ziyech agreed to join the Blues in February but has been injured since picking up a knock vs Brighton in pre-season.

Johnson also provided an update on Ben Chilwell, who left the England camp earlier this week due to an injury flare-up.

Despite this, it is understood that the full-back is on course to feature vs Southampton.

Edouard Mendy, however, is reportedly set to miss out after picking up an injury whilst away on international duty:
