Chelsea have welcomed wingers Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi to training at Cobham, confirmed Frank Lampard (via Blues Twitter bill).
The Blues have suffered back-to-back losses en route to Everton and Wolves, with little natural width available for either game in attack. Timo Werner is the closest thing to an alternative winger Lampard has had available, with Christian Pulisic on and off the team.
But fear not, Chelsea fans. Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi are back in training, having made their comeback today, Lampard confirmed in his pre-match press conference.
The boss begins with an injury update and reports that Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi are training with the team for the first time today. He will have to see where they are on Monday before making a decision for West Ham. That’s the only injury news.#CHEWHU

It remains to be seen if any of them will be fit to face West Ham on Monday night, but their returns, Ziyech in particular, will be welcomed by all with any Chelsea affiliation. According to recent evidence, they need them.
Ziyech in particular, who of the variety of Chelsea attacking talents they recruited over the summer appears to be the most effective today. Who would have thought?
