Frank Lampard who is the handler of Premier League side Chelsea has confirmed that the duo of Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi will be out of action for two weeks each.
During the Blues' Premier League win over Leeds United, Ziyech sustained hamstring injury and the Morocco international is now recuperating.
Since joining Chelsea from Ajax, Hakim Ziyech has not really been impressive for the Stamford Bridge landlords and much is expected from him this term.
Before the Blues' Champions League game against Krasnodar, Hudson-Odoi also sustained hamstring in training which ruled him out of the encounter.
According to the report on UK Sun, these two players have been accessed by Chelsea's medical team, and Lampard is optimistic that they would return to training in two weeks.
“Both players are hopefully going to be out for around two weeks. They had scans yesterday and their injuries are showing that they will be about two weeks.
“With Callum we didn’t know what to expect. It was an injury he got in training a couple of days ago.”
Chelsea are currently occupying third position on the Premier League standings with 22 points after 11 games played so far this season.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Premier League giants Chelsea on Tuesday night, December 8, finished first in Champions League Group E with 14 points despite playing a 1-1 draw with Krasnodar.
The Blues went into this encounter with boosted morale having not lost any game in their last five Champions League games and had already qualified for the knockout stages.
Krasnodar who have only won one game wanted to shock Chelsea at Stamford Bridge with the hope of at least getting another victory in their last game.
But they were unable to get the win they traveled to England for as Chelsea forced them to a draw at Stamford Bridge.
The visitors scored the first goal through Remy Cabella in the 24th minute as he beat goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to give his team the lead.
