 'It won’t be his last performance like that': Ex-Spurs player Garth Crooks explains why Ziyech will keep shining

“At Burnley, he scored his first Premier League goal for Chelsea. On that performance, it won’t be his last. Hakim Ziyech scored in the Champions League in midweek against Krasnodar and looks capable of scoring lots more,” Crooks told BBC Sport.

“The Morocco international looks so balanced and comfortable on the ball. The way he took the ball from Reece James with his left foot and then transferred it to his right in order to slide the ball to Timo Werner to score was quite stunning.

"The ball never stopped travelling forward and as a consequence it never gave Burnley’s defence any time to readjust. It looks as if the Atlas Lions have found another star – with Chelsea now getting the benefit.”

Ziyech had to watch from the sidelines as a pre-season injury caused him to miss the start of the season.

Since coming into the side, he's scored in back to back games and is raking in the plaudits for his performances.
