Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea's team have been handed a huge blow going into Chelsea's matches next season. Hakim Ziyech is a Moroccan international player and is set to miss next season, due to his country's involvement in the 2022 African Cup of Nation.
Hakim Ziyech is set to miss one month in next season's fixture as he could be set for more international duty before the end of 2021.
After qualifying for the 2022 African Cup Of Nations, Morocco sealed their passage to the finals in the last international break after beating Burundi and drawing with Mauritania, which means Thomas Tuchel will miss Hakim Ziyech next season.
The Moroccan moved to Chelsea last summer for £33.4m from Netherland club, Ajax Amsterdam. Hakim Ziyech scored three goals and made four assists for Morocco in successful qualification campaign.
Chelsea take on Fulham on Saturday in their EPL match for a place in next season's UCL. They also look to get to their first final since 2012 as they take on Real Madrid in the second leg at the Bridge.
Is Hakim Ziyech a big miss for the Blues next season?
