Chilwell and Ziyech in Chelsea squad but Mendy is out

The winger represented the Blues more than 350 times and won two Premier League and Europa League titles before joining Real Madrid previous year.

Edouard Mendy will miss Chelsea's clash with Southampton this weekend, though Frank Lampard revealed his excitement following the return to fitness of summer signing Hakim Ziyech.

And Lampard think the club was exactly what the club needed to increase their chances of landing higher this season after losing a player of Hazard's caliber.

"For me we lost probably the best player in the league", the manager told reporters. "We couldn't do business so we worked on the pitch previous year".

"Teams that are striving to be in and around top six and upwards were spending past year, they were spending again this summer".

"We don't expect the best game from us at the moment, but they are also struggling with a lot of players going on worldwide travels, so the team that finds quicker in the game and better in the game has a big chance to win it". 'And if you have the chance to get such a player who is still hungry and who wants to learn, who has quality without a doubt... it is definitely a player that makes us better'.

"I get it because this is football. With our process there will be time needed, but we want to work against that and get to where we want to be as quick as possible", Lampard added.

"But we shouldn't have a problem with expectations".

"I welcome expectations. We have to put them to the side, work hard and try to live up to them".

Ziyech is yet to make his competitive debut for Chelsea, having picked up a knee injury in a pre-season friendly against Brighton.
