Why Ziyech’s performance vs Sheffield United was truly special


Chelsea’s Morocco superstar was impeccable against the Blades, as Frank Lampard’s men gave their most impressive showing of the season to date

It was hard not to grin from ear to ear after seeing Chelsea defeat Sheffield United 4-1 on Saturday. Even Frank Lampard couldn’t conceal his pleasure at what he’d witnessed when cameras focused on the Blues boss in the second half, minutes after Thiago Silva scored his first for the club.

Victory at Stamford Bridge wasn’t the West London club’s widest margin of triumph in this season’s Premier League — that was a 4-0 defeat of Crystal Palace in early October — but success in gameweek eight was probably better than what was witnessed against the Eagles weeks ago.

The beaming smiles at full-time were largely due to the performance of the team against a Sheffield side that never makes it easy against any opponent, especially the top teams. The near-perfect Chelsea display was aided by Hakim Ziyech, who gave his best showing yet in his short Blues career to date against Chris Wilder’s men.
