Hakim Ziyech is fit and ready to make the difference for Chelsea against Tottenham on Thursday night.
BeinSports journalist Ibrahim Khadra reported the fact taht the Moroccan is “100%” for the big match, and he might need to be. It could get physical against Jose Mourino’s team, and it’s certain to be a draining match at the very least.

That’s a boost for Thomas Tuchel, who didn’t have the former Ajax man available to him in the game against Burnley last week.
Ziyech did start Tuchel’s first game in charge, against Wolves, but despite playing alongside Kai Havertz in the hole behind Olivier Giroud, he couldn’t make much happen.
We’d be excited to see Tammy Abraham or Timo Werner stretch the game a little from up top, leaving space for Ziyech and Havertz to work between the lines.
