Chelsea fans love what Hakim Ziyech did before Tammy Abraham’s goal vs Sheffield United

Hakim Ziyech played a key role in Chelsea’s first-half comeback against Sheffield United.

The Blues fell behind inside the opening 10 minutes as David McGoldrick became the first player to score past Edouard Mendy in the Premier League this season.

It was also the first goal Chelsea had conceded since the 3-3 draw with Southampton last month.

But whilst head coach Frank Lampard would have been disappointed with how his side started the game at Stamford Bridge, his mood will have improved before half-time.

And that is mostly down to Ziyech.

The Morocco international marked his first home start in the Premier League for Chelsea following his £33.4m summer transfer with another assist as Ben Chilwell bundled home his cross to put the home side 2-1 up.

Although, it’s what Ziyech did beforehand that impressed fans even more.

Chelsea’s equaliser came about when Tammy Abraham scuffed Mateo Kovacic’s cutback into the corner of the net for his second goal in the space of three days.

Despite the assist being credited to Kovacic, Blues fans have been quick to shower Ziyech with praise for the pre-assist as it was his fine pass that picked out the Croatia international’s run.
