Jorginho, Ziyech, Azpilicueta: Chelsea injury news and team news ahead of Man United clash

Chelsea started their Champions League campaign with a goalless draw at home to Sevilla.

The Blues could not find a way through the well-organised visitors and had to be content with a point.

Next up, Frank Lampard takes his side to Manchester United at the weekend.

The Red Devils beat Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night to make it back-to-back wins, so the Blues will hope to have all their players available against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Here is a round-up of all the very latest Chelsea injury news.

Hakim Ziyech

Like on Saturday against Southampton, Hakim Ziyech was again named on the bench against Sevilla.

The Morocco international is thought to still be building up his fitness after missing the start of the season with a knee injury.

Lampard brought Ziyech on for Mason Mount with under half hour to go against Sevilla, but the midfielder’s introduction could not inspire the Blues to victory.

Ziyech will remain in contention to start on Saturday at Old Trafford.

Cesar Azpilicueta

The Chelsea club captain was left on the bench against Sevilla, with Reece James replacing him in the starting line-up.

However, this is thought to be purely a rotational decision from Lampard, with the long-serving Spaniard getting a rest ahead of the Manchester United clash.

Azpilicueta remained an unused substitute on Tuesday evening.


The Italy international started the game against Sevilla and was named captain in Azpilicueta’s absence.

However, he was subbed off after 65 minutes for Mateo Kovacic with the scores still level.

This is thought to have been a tactical decision from Lampard, however, with the former Napoli midfielder on a yellow card.

The Blues star should be in contention for selection on Saturday.
