Chelsea fans have taken to social media and reacted to Hakim Ziyech’s latest brilliant performance.
The £33.4m summer signing from Ajax had a delayed start to his career in west London because of injury and his first competitive appearance of the season actually came during last month’s international break.
Introduced just before the hour mark in Morocco’s friendly win over Senegal, Ziyech would not only come through the game injury-free but also claimed an assist from an inch-perfect set-piece delivery.

Since that outing, the 27-year-old has brought his international form to club level as he’s been very impressive in a Chelsea shirt over the past month.
Following a few substitute appearances as head coach Frank Lampard eased Ziyech into action, the playmaker has nailed down a spot on the right-hand side of the Blues’ front three.
He marked his first two starts with goals against Krasnodar and Burnley, before turning in arguably his finest display for the west London outfit to date last weekend.
Ziyech recorded assists for Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva’s goals, had a major hand in Tammy Abraham’s equaliser and in total created half a dozen chances in a man-of-the-match display against Sheffield United.
A goal would have capped off what was an outstanding evening for the attacking midfielder, although he did experience the scoring feeling for Morocco on Friday night.
Ziyech scored two goals in the space of three first-half minutes and also grabbed an assist as Morocco beat Central African Republic 4-1 in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
As expected, this garnered a huge response from Chelsea fans on Twitter…
