Lampard has confirmed that Ziyech will be in the squad but only for a sub.

Ziyech who performed well on his international duty will feature on the Chelsea squad after obtaining injury against Brighton in a Friendly match.

The Moroccan has recovered from a knee injury and will be in the matchday squad, with Ben Chilwell and Christian Pulisic also fine to feature. 

Edouard Mendy and Thiago Silva will miss out, however, with the goalkeeper injured and the Brazilian not involved following a long-haul trip for his national side this week. 

‘Mendy won’t be fit for this game but we hope he won’t be out for too long,’ said Lampard at his pre-match press conference.

‘Thiago Silva after his trip [with the Brazil national team], is not in the squad. He’s not unfit but he’s not ready to play in the weekend’s game due to the traveling he’s done. 

‘Ben Chilwell is in the squad. He’s got over some of the feelings with the injury he has had for a while that took him out of the England squad, so he’s available for tomorrow. 

‘Christian Pulisic is in the squad, he’s fit and ready, and Hakim Ziyech is also in the squad. He’s not fit to start but is fit enough to participate in some way, we hope.'

Tomorrow Chelsea will face Manchester United at Old Trafford, it will be an interesting Saturday.

Man United have won both their Premier League matches on the road this season, but there has not been a home win in domestic competitions at Old Trafford for four games.

Their two top-flight fixtures there have produced an aggregate score of 2-9. The regular Saturday evening slot has delivered mixed results for the Blues over the past 18 months. Last season, wins at Burnley and Watford were followed by three straight losses at Manchester City, Newcastle, and Sheffield United.

The 3-3 humdinger at the Hawthorns last month was Chelsea’s first 5.30 pm kick off the new season (though there is an argument the boys in Blue only started playing around an hour later, in the comeback).

Chelsea team news After Wednesday’s Champions League intriguing stalemate, Chelsea has managed three clean sheets this season, two of them with new signing Mendy in goal and three of the same back four. Other than the recovering Billy Gilmour, Frank Lampard has a virtually empty treatment room at Cobham and firepower to test a home defence that will be without first-choices Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly. As BT’s analyst Joe Cole observed after Tuesday’s 0-0, matters arising from the second half of the 3-3 draw with Southampton look to have been addressed, with greater defensive calmness, coherence, and togetherness, despite regular Sevilla pressure.

Perhaps Hakim Ziyech will see more action against former Ajax team-mate Donny van de Beek – Chelsea’s wizard midfielder was the Amsterdam club’s player of the year in each of the past three seasons. Thiago Silva likely to start while Gilmour will be free from injury soon

The duo of Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden has now been dropped and will not travel with the England squad from Iceland to Denmark after breaching UEFA's coronavirus protocols, Gareth Southgate has confirmed.

The FA is investigating media reports in Iceland that Greenwood and Foden broke quarantine rules while at their team hotel in Reykjavik.

Iceland's police force has said the players have each been fined 250,000 Icelandic Krona (£1,360) for the rule breach, which must be paid by the individuals themselves and not by the FA or their clubs.

Southgate confirmed the pair broke coronavirus secure bubble guidelines and have been sent back to England, without contact with any other players since Monday morning.

"Unfortunately this morning it was brought to my attention that the two boys have broken the Covid guidelines in terms of our secure bubble.

"We had to decide very quickly that they could not have any interaction with the team, wouldn't be able to train. Given the procedures we have to follow now, they have to travel back to England separately."

Southgate said the breach had occurred outside of the part of the hotel the FA has booked for the England squad.

"Nothing has happened in the areas we occupy in the team hotel," he insisted.

"We are still getting to the depths of all the information because it was only brought to my attention only a couple of hours before training, I am still getting to grips with some of the detail.

In the meantime both players have "apologised for their serious lack of judgement";
