The 27-year-old has already been put through his paces away from the main group as he builds up his fitness ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, according to Chelsea's official website, but he finally took part in his first group training session earlier.
The club's Twitter account posted footage of Ziyech in action and, considering he hasn't played a competitive game since March, the winger looks sharp.
