‘The best of Hazard and Genius like Fabregas’ Chelsea fans sent very exciting message about £33 million signing
Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes Hakim Ziyech reminds him of both Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas.
The £33million summer signing was one of the early signings for Chelsea in the transfer window after making a name for himself in Dutch football with Ajax, and many fans could have easily forgot that he was signed by the club.
But over the past few weeks, he has started to make a real impact in the Chelsea starting line-up and has become a real source of goals for Frank Lampard’s men, who are starting to show their class in recent games.
Ziyech was outstanding in Chelsea’s 4-1 win over Sheffield United at the weekend, as he He made two assists and showed brilliant quality with his range of passing, and now Nevin has opened up and claimed that he looks a little bit like Fabregas and Hazard
And Nevin told talkSPORT: “It was a magnificent performance showing little glimpses that reminded you of the best of Eden Hazard at one moment and then Cesc Fabregas’s genius two minutes later.
“I can already see something special with Reece and Hakim. You might stop one, but that will create space for the other. Timo Werner has obviously figured out that he is a good guy to know.
“Every time Hakim gets the ball, Timo is off haring into space knowing that Hakim can find him nine times out of ten. If that ball is coming in from the right wing, Timo will be on that back post.”
Wow that is a big claim to make and Ziyech will thank Nevin for his words, he has certainly made the right impression on this Chelsea squad, who have been missing a player like him since Hazard left the club.
He has alot to prove and needs to keep his head down, but he can be happy with the performances he has put in this season.
