Morocco international has arrived in Cobham (Chelsea’s training ground) and have also trained a couple of times with his new teammates, he was also spotted yesterday in the pitch when Chelsea was playing Norwich city.
However although he arrived so late in England, it is still possible for this creative midfielder/winger to play against Manchester united in FA cup clash on Sunday, July 19 but Chelsea have to hurry with his registration. If Chelsea could possibly register Ziyech before Friday there is no way he wont participate because it is a domestic trophy. The registration is not that easy and i doubt if Chelsea could finish that before time. Having him in that match will really booster Frank Lampard’s attack.
Imagine when Chelsea is playing against Man United and then Christian Pulisic is seen at the left wing, Ziyech at the attacking midfield position, Willian or Hudson odoi at the right wing and finally Olivier Giroud at the striking position. This will really help Chelsea to take revenge on the red devils after a 3-times defeat this season. If Wan-Bissaka gets head strong and gives Pulisic tough time, Ziyech might as well go to that left wing and feed him some left-footed dribbles.
Chelsea are still comfortable at the 3rd spot especially after their weak 1-0 win against Norwich city and playing Manchester United with this squad might not really be a good one. I think Lampard should motivate his players more because if Ziyech registration falls through, they still need to play with what they have and then make sure that trophy comes to Stamford bridge as they did when Eden Hazard was still in Chelsea.
