Two new Chelsea signings Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech major doubts for opening Premier League encounter, according to The Metro.
West London outfit Chelsea have had a remarkable transfer window thus far, with plenty of major signings announced already with the possibility of more in the next four weeks.
However, with just eight days until their Premier League opener away at Brighton & Hove Albion next Monday night two signings could be ruled out due to injury.
Ironically Ziyech suffered a twist in his knee during a friendly against the Seagulls last weekend and will now most likely ruled out facing the South-Coast side in a competitive match.
From a defensive perspective Chilwell was struggling with a heel injury when he when he initially arrived from Leicester City last month and is still not thought to be match fit.
It’s certainly not the most ideal news for Blues boss Frank Lampard who will be desperate to bed in as many of his new signings as early as he possibly can.
