The Moroccan will feature for the 50th time in a Chelsea shirt if selected by our German head coach against Leicester City this weekend, with 32 of his Chelsea appearances coming under Tuchel’s management.
Ziyech has started three of our last four games in all competitions, scoring the winner in our 1-0 win in Malmo, and Tuchel has stated the club have no plans of letting him leave in January.
‘I said many times, he was brilliant in pre-season,’ Tuchel said. ‘He had a major injury which was a huge setback. He played after his shoulder injury with pain and huge protection that kept him from being totally free which is necessary for his game, his movement and mobility, and his position and style of play.
