Chelsea boss Tuchel: I like Ziyech!

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admits he's happy seeing Hakim Ziyech making an impact.

Ziyech has scored two goals and supplied two assists in the past month.

Tuchel said, "I like him. I can feel it that he feels better now. It took him a long time. He was always very ambitious with his shoulder injury but I could feel that the 100 per cent he could give was not the 100 per cent of his top level. Now he feels much better and I can feel it.

"He smiles, he's happy, he is decisive. He had huge influence now from the bench against Leicester and in Watford. We had two matches in between those when he played from the start, against Juventus and Man United.

"Hakim is in a good shape, is in good form and a good state of mind. We want him absolutely to be influential but I will not say if he starts tomorrow or comes from the bench."
