And Lampard, who revealed the thinking behind starting a Moroccan with Culum Hudson-do Doini, was clearly impressed.
“Hakim Ziyach was fit today, for the first time he was really fit to start the game,” Chelsea Bose said. “He has worked really hard to stay fit and I was very keen to get his quality in the team. We saw that he was on the pitch for the whole period. It brought a lot of quality and peace and got the right goal.
“With Kumlum on the left I felt he deserved a chance to play. He’s trained very well lately, that’s our competition in the field and we’re also in the middle of a very busy patch of games so we need the input of all the attacking players.
“It simply came to our notice then [Ziyech’s] The performance was very good when you consider that the Dutch league has not started a match since March when it ended. So I’m so excited for him to come on the pitch so it’s been frustrating for me and for him and us that his injury didn’t allow him to start.
“But what I’ve seen in training so far and I knew we were signing as a player was a player with a lot of quality and personality to get the ball, help and find goals. We have seen many glimpses of it today. We brought him to the job and people probably forgot a bit because we signed him in January and he missed out on the start of the season. Tonight, he showed for sure that he is here. “
