“He trained few days” – Potter confirm €40m star will be ‘involved’ against Brentford

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has hinted that Hakim Ziyech would be involved in the Premier League clash against Brentford on Wednesday night.

The 29-year-old has struggled for consistency since his completing his €40 million move from Ajax in 2020, failing to concrete his place in the starting XI. He has only featured in three Premier League matches this season.

Speaking during his press conference on Tuesday, Potter was asked whether or not Ziyech would make the trip to Brentford for Wednesday’s clash, he said:

“He’s fine. He’s trained the last few days so he’ll be involved against Brentford.”

The coach further clarified that Sunday’s game against Aston Villa came too soon for him but he was fine to pitch in against Brentford.

“He had a really heavy cold which knocked him about for a few days so the game against Villa came too soon but he’s trained well recently so he’ll be involved,” he added.

Since joining the Stamford Bridge unit, Ziyech has featured in 88 games for them across competitions, scoring 14 goals and claiming 10 assists.
