Chelsea boss Tuchel confirms Ziyech unavailable for FA Cup tie

Ziyech has not recovered in time for the trip to Kenilworth Road.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed Hakim Ziyech will not take part in Wednesday’s FA Cup fifth-round fixture with Luton Town.

The Morocco international was also sidelined in Chelsea’s Carabao Cup loss on Sunday against Liverpool. Ziyech is still recovering from the injury.

Tuchel has said the Moroccan playmaker has not recovered in time for the trip to Kenilworth Road.

Tuchel said of Ziyech at a pre-match press conference, “Hakim is not available for tomorrow as he was not available for the final, unfortunately.

“He still feels uncomfortable and was not in team training today so he’s one of the guys who will miss the game tomorrow.”

The 28-year-old made 14 appearances in Premier League this term, scoring four goals. He should join the Chelsea squad before their Premier League tie.
