BBC Pundit Garth Crooks has lavished praises on Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech after his man of the match performance in Chelsea’s 3-0 victory against Burnley at Turf Moor.

Crooks was amazed by Ziyech’s performance and named him in his ‘team of the week’.

“At Burnley, he scored his first Premier League goal for Chelsea,” he said in his team of the week column on BBC.

“On that performance, it won’t be his last. Hakim Ziyech scored in the Champions League in midweek against Krasnodar and looks capable of scoring lots more.

“The Morocco international looks so balanced and comfortable on the ball. The way he took the ball from Reece James with his left foot and then transferred it to his right in order to slide the ball to Timo Werner to score was quite stunning.

“The ball never stopped travelling forward and as a consequence it never gave Burnley’s defence any time to readjust. It looks as if the Atlas Lions have found another star – with Chelsea now getting the benefit.”

Ziyech who has been one of Chelsea’s best players in the last two games will be hoping to retain his starting position when the Blues face Rennes in the Champions League tomorrow.
