Ziyech celebrates scoring his first Premier League for Chelsea

Talented winger, Hakim Ziyech, has scored his first Premier League goal in less than 30mins of his first start for Chelsea. 

The Moroccan signed for the Stamford Bridge club on the 1st of July, 2020 for a fee in the region of £35m, from a dominant Ajax team that were in the semi finals of the UEFA Champions League last season. 

However, the crafty midfielder was yet to feature for Chelsea dominantly this season in the Premier League after picking up a knee injury in a warm up game against Brighton. 

Meanwhile, in what could be described as a promising start to life as a Blues player, Ziyech scored his first goal against Burnley just within 26 minutes of his first start for his side. 

Following a dominant play by Frank Lampard’s young side, Tammy Abraham tapped the ball to him on the edge of the box, and the Moroccan did the rest after rifling beyond Nick Pope down the centre of the goal. It is Ziyech’s first Premier League goal for Chelsea. 

Earlier this week, Frank Lampard had backed the midfielder to be the man who makes his team tick, and hoped that the winger can prove a worthy successor to Eden Hazard. Lampard must be pleased with Ziyech’s response.
