Chelsea boss says that Ziyech is still adapting to English football.

After missing the beginning of the season due to a knee injury,


has been facing difficulty in showing his quality to the


’ boss, but


thinks that the player will eventually adapt to English football and will show his true value.

"Hopefully tomorrow we see the best of him,"

Tuchel said ahead of Chelsea's trip to Oakwell.

"He had a good training week and we count on Hakim like on everybody else, there's absolutely no doubt about that.

"We took some decisions for other players, not against him but for other players, and he will have the chance to show tomorrow the same quality he shows in training, the same determination.

"For me, it's clear he needs to adapt to this kind of football, this kind of league. He comes from the Dutch league, from a strong Ajax squad but they were the benchmark in the league and it's not the same intensity and competition as it is here, but he is adapting.

"He has the certain quality to decide matches and the certain quality to do the unexpected which can give you an extra twist in any game and on a level which he proved with Ajax. Of course, we want to push him to the same level of performance that he showed there and this is our job."
