Hakim Ziyech has strolled into Chelsea's starting XI and already looks the part in the Premier League, providing two assists in the Blues' 4-1 dismantling of Sheffield United.

📷 Ziyech: Match Snapshot

A ⏱️ 34' Ziyech's deep cross to the back post found Ben Chilwell who steamed in to bundle into the net and put Chelsea in front.

⏱️ 77' It was another set-piece delivery 13 minutes from time that sealed the win, whipping his cross to the back post where Thiago Silva leapt highest to nod into the net.

Besides this Ziyech produced a top-class performance in every aspect of his game. He created a total of three big chances in the contest and Timo Werner really should have given him three assists, but could only lob wide.

The Moroccan isn't concerned with the simple pass and when it comes off for him, he is a real joy to watch. Above all, this showed his set-pieces will be a real added danger for Chelsea this season.
