The feature of the Morocco international’s season is without a doubt his strike that saw Chelsea emerging victorious against Manchester City 1-0 at Wembley to guarantee a spot in the FA Cup last in the not so much of a distant future.
Notwithstanding, he has been compelled to confront long spells as an afterthought lines, restricted to appearance appearances from the seat especially under previous manager Frank Lampard.

“Chelsea manager truly needs to believe that Ziyech needs to play on the correct side. It resembles Mahrez of Manchester City, he’s a duplicate feline of Mahrez.
“I don’t see Guardiola placing Mahrez in another position than on the correct side.”
Ziyech attempted to apply his impact in the 2-0 home success over neighborhood rivals Fulham, and was dragged away soon after the hour mark for N’Golo Kante.
The reality Ziyech was given a beginning was seriously amazing, an extravagance he has just been conceded on 14 events in the Premier League this season alone.
