Chelsea new boys Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell will miss the start of the Premier League season in a real blow to Frank Lampard, according to reports.

The Blues have been ruthless in the summer transfer window - signing Ziyech (£37m), Chilwell (£50m), Timo Werner (£53m), Kai Havertz (£89m) while also completing free transfers for Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr.

However, according to The Athletic - Chelsea fans will have to wait to see both Ziyech and Chilwell in action after they are set to miss the start of the campaign - in which they begin away at Brighton on Monday - due to injury.
