Chelsea boss Lampard on goalscorer Ziyech: He's meeting my expectations

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was delighted with goalscorer Hakim Ziyech after their 3-0 win at Burnley.

Goals from Ziyech, Kurt Zouma and Timo Werner did the damage, while Edouard Mendy kept his fifth consecutive clean sheet as three points were safely secured in Lancashire.

On Ziyech, Lampard said: "I expected a lot of him because I was very aware of his qualities - his eye for a pass, receiving, crossing and making assists but what I've seen as well since he's been here is his personality when he plays.

"He wants the ball, his work-rate off the ball is very good as well and he's brought those qualities and given us a big boost. Two games in a few days was a test after being out for so long but it's been a really good start for him."
