Chelsea boss has spoken about the Moroccan winger and his progress in the team.

Chelsea

recovered exceptionally from a ninth minute goal by

Sheffield United

’s

David McGoldrick

and managed to win their Saturday Premier clash with an inspiring 4-1 win. McGoldrick’s goal was the first goal that Chelsea conceded in 459 minutes in all competitions and the team’s mentality to flip the result once again showed the high quality of the team’s strength. Goals by

Tammy Abraham

,

Ben Chilwell

,

Thiago Silva

and

Timo Werner

were enough for Chelsea to take another three points and place themselves only one point behind Southampton at the top of the table.

Hakim Ziyech

, Chelsea’s new signing from

Ajax

had great influence on the game as he managed to supply two assists and created six chances for Lampard’s team which made the English coach express his praise for the 27-year-old winger.

"We played against [Ziyech] in the Champions League last year - he's a top-class player, He impresses you even more when you work with him.

"The Dutch league finished a long time ago, then he had an injury so to hit the ground running like he has, he has been remarkable.

"He will be a big player for us. I need players who can come in and lift the level. That's hard. The midfield were great with their driving runs."
