Chelsea bolstered their squad with some exciting attacking talent – Timo Werner and Kai Havertz – in the summer transfer window.
Head coach Frank Lampard’s options in that area of the pitch already included the likes of Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Tammy Abraham.
But perhaps the most anticipated summer signing is Hakim Ziyech.
The 27-year-old was actually the first summer arrival however, the playmaker is yet to feature for the west London outfit.
That is because he sustained a knee injury in the pre-season draw with Brighton and Hove Albion in August.
With that said, Ziyech has been back in training over the past month and seems certain to make his Chelsea debut after the international break against Southampton.
And in a major boost for Lampard and the Blues, the attacking midfielder made his first appearance since August for Morocco in their friendly win over Senegal on Friday night.
One way to get the quartet into the same side would be Werner as the centre-forward and Ziyech, Havertz, and Pulisic in the supporting roles.
On the prospect of having Ziyech and Pulisic available, Lampard has said: “I think they will all bring the best out of each other.
“It’s a shame we haven’t had them. Hakim will bring something completely different for us.
“I am very excited to have them fit.
“I have a clear idea of where I want them to play.”
