Frank Lampard reported that on Saturday, Edouard Mendy is going to miss Chelsea’s clash with Southampton, but Hakim Ziyech is ready to make his club debut. In the match against Ziyech’s Morocco, which was the winger’s first competitive game after injuring his knee in a pre-season friendly with Brighton, goalkeeper Mendy sustained a thigh injury while away with Senegal.
There was mixed news elsewhere because the demands of international football mean that Thiago Silva is going to miss out, but after withdrawing from the England team, Ben Chilwell is fine.
We hope the injury is not too long, “Lampard said at his pre-match press conference,” Mendy won’t be fit for the match tomorrow. After his trip and return, Thiago Silva is not unfit, but because of the journey and the game he played, he’s not ready to play the game. So he’s not going to be in the squad.
