Chelsea summer arrival Hakim Ziyech produced a sublime performance in Morocco’s African Cup of Nations qualifying match against Central African Republic, scoring twice and providing an exquisite assist in his side’s comprehensive 4-1 victory.
Ziyech missed the start of Chelsea’s campaign after suffering a knee injury in pre-season but the 27-year-old is beginning to showcase the kind of form that made him a star at Ajax.
The attacking midfielder hit the ground running in west London and became the first player since Diego Costa back in 2014 to find the net in his opening two games for Chelsea away to Krasnodar and Burnley in the Champions League and Premier League respectively.
He then assisted both Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva in the Blues’ emphatic win over Sheffield United last weekend. (Metro)
