Hakim Ziyech's Highlights On His First Premier League Start Are Wonderful

Hakim Ziyech produced a wonderful performance on his first Premier League start.

The Moroccan international got off the mark for Chelsea in the 4-0 Champions League group stage thrashing of Krasnodar and followed it up with a goal and assist in today's 3-0 win at Burnley.

Ziyech had to wait a little longer to get a run in the Chelsea side due to injury but in only his second start, he was a class act at Turf Moor, as his highlights show.

Coming in off the right flank with that lovely left-foot he has, he linked up superbly with the likes of Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham and Kai Havertz.

The former Ajax man opened the scoring and his Premier League account in the 26th minute when he finished smartly past Nick Pope after a lay-off from Abraham and he turned provider for the last goal.

After Reece James regained possession for the Blues, Ziyech threaded through Timo Werner with a perfectly-weighted pass for his fifth goal in Chelsea colours.

Manager Frank Lampard had called Ziyech "an absolute dream" in the build-up to the game and continue to praise him following today's showing.

"I'm really impressed and really excited," Lampard told the BBC post-match.

"I could see his personality and work-rate off the ball, he has that. You saw that today. That bit of quality gives us something different."
