Ziyech stars as Chelsea enjoys 4-1 win over Sheffield Utd (Highlights)
Chelsea winger, Hakim Ziyech, has said he is loving life in west London after once more playing a crucial role for the Blues in their latest convincing victory.
Ziyech completed a €40 million (£36m/$47m) move from Ajax over the summer, having come to the fore for the Dutch giants in their 2018-19 Champions League adventure.
But he was eased into first-team action at Stamford Bridge, not making his full debut until the end of October away to Krasnodar after recovering from injury.
The Morocco international marked that match with a goal and has since proved a potent attacking threat, with his two assists during Saturday’s 4-1 thrashing of Sheffield United bringing him to a total of two strikes and three assists in just four starts to date.
Frank Lampard’s men have in turn benefited, winning all four games Ziyech has started and netting an impressive 14 goals – leading the playmaker to express his happiness at the atmosphere in his new dressing room.
“I feel comfortable here in the team and with the squad and all my team-mates so I think that’s why I feel comfortable here,” he told Sky Sports when asked about adapting to life at Chelsea.
“I think we played a good game, the first 10 minutes was difficult – we started a bit sloppy but after 1-0 we could control the game and couldn’t score more goals at that point but we played a good game.”
