Hakim Ziyech was forced off with a first-half injury in Chelsea’s clash with Leeds.

The Morocco winger hobbled out of the action at Stamford Bridge after just half an hour on Saturday.

Ziyech looked in discomfort as he made his way to the touchline, with Christian Pulisic replacing him.

Ziyech missed the start of the season with a knee injury, but had strapping on his left thigh as he went down the tunnel.

Frank Lampard will hope the issue is not serious, with the Chelsea manager presiding over a fully fit squad before kick off.

Ziyech was heavily involved – even if only on the pitch for a short time.

He tested Illan Meslier with a snap shot inside moments of the kick off. And he played a major part in Olivier Giroud’s equaliser just before going off.

It was his ball to Reece James on the overlap that led to the full back crossing for Giroud to convert after Patrick Bamford put Leeds in front.
