‘A Masterclass Without The Goals’ ‘His Shooting Is Awful’ Fans Deliver Verdict As Chelsea Ace Is Recalled By Tuchel For Spurs Win

Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech was recalled by Thomas Tuchel for the 2-0 victory against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup last night.

The Moroccan international had not made an appearance since the 0-0 draw versus Wolves last month and it was clear he was trying to impress his manager with his performance.

Ziyech delivered some excellent passes, one of which led to the Blues’ second goal, and while most fans on Twitter were happy with what they saw from the 28-year-old, some did criticise his finishing:

To be fair to Ziyech, he hadn’t played a single minute of first-team football for two and a half weeks before yesterday’s game, so he was likely to be slightly rusty. Having said that, though, his nine goals in 58 appearances for Chelsea is hardly a great return considering he scored far more frequently for Ajax.

The winger’s all-round game does mitigate his mediocre shooting somewhat so Tuchel may well consider giving him more game time in upcoming fixtures based on his good display against Spurs.
