Chelsea ace Ziyech explains changing goal celebrations: Don't read too much into it

Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech has urged fans not to read too much into his changing goal celebrations.

The win over Tottenham was the second game running that Ziyech had scored the first goal of the match, having also put Chelsea 1-0 up away at Brighton in midweek.

There was little celebration in evidence from the 28-year-old at Falmer Stadium, in contrast to the wide smile on display following his first Premier League goal at Stamford Bridge, and he explained that was down to very different feelings on our overall performance and the direction those games were going in.

He explained: "It's just two different situations. In the game against Brighton, I got the first to make it 1-0, but we weren't playing well, so there was a little bit of frustration. But against Tottenham, I think right from the beginning we played well.

"We had them where we wanted them. Sometimes they had some counter-attacks but it wasn't really dangerous at all. I think we played a good game, we had a lot of chances, played a lot of football, and so it was a different situation."
