Hakim Ziyech was instrumental in Chelsea’s 4-1 win over Sheffield United on Saturday evening.
The 27-year-old, who was actually the first of many summer arrivals at Stamford Bridge, has settled into Frank Lampard’s side with relative ease following a delayed start to his career in England.
A knee injury sustained in the pre-season draw with Brighton and Hove Albion in August meant Chelsea fans had to wait until after the October international break to see Ziyech in action.

And he’s not disappointed in his first few appearances.
Ziyech was initially eased back into action by Frank Lampard as his competitive debut for the west London outfit came in the draw against Southampton and then made two further substitute appearances against Sevilla as well as Manchester United.
Lampard’s patience was rewarded in the final week of October as the Morocco international marked starts against Krasnodar and Burnley with goals.
But arguably Ziyech’s best performance in a Chelsea shirt to date came against the Blades.
Not only did the attacking midfielder help himself to a pair of assists – as well as an pre-assist for Tammy Abraham’s equaliser – but he produced a moment of magic in the second half.
A clip of him getting past a Sheffield United player with an outrageous piece of skill has gone viral on social media.
