After the restart of the game at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, Kovacic was injured and replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Ziyech, who has met the back of the net in all of the last three matches he appeared in the Premier League and assisted Kai Havertz for a goal against Lille, suffered an ankle injury. Saul Niguez came on the pitch to replace him in the 60th minute.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is hoping the two players get fit in time for the battle against Liverpool on Sunday, as the Blues are aiming for more silverware following the Club World Cup victory this month.
