Chelsea were four goals to the good in our Champions League clash against Russian side Krasnodar, with Chelsea winning the game 4-0.

Goals from Callum Hudson-Odoi, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic gave Chelsea the win, and former Tottenham star Jermain Jenas was particularly impressed by the performance of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.

Speaking on BT Sports, Jenas sang the praises of the Morocco International as he capped his first Chelsea start with a goal.

“You know what, I thought he (Ziyech) had some really good moments in there,” said the former Tottenham Hotspur player.

“In the first half he was getting better as the half went on. I mentioned the fact that fitness for him is of most importance right now, he is a player that relies a lot on his sharpness and you can see the quick feet in the tight areas.

“He is going to be a good player for Chelsea and he is a man that thoroughly enjoyed seeing that third goal go in for Chelsea.”

Werner also got the praises of Jenas, as the former Spurs forward hailed the diversity of the former RB Leipzig striker.

“I just love the ability he has to play in all forward positions. It shows the intelligence of the player,” he added of the striker who has now scored four goals in nine games for Chelsea.

“It hasn’t been all going his way, but he’s been sticking at it, and he’s going to get goals.

“For a Chelsea team that are trying to keep the door shut at times, he could be the difference, because he has the quality of international level and Champions League level as well.”
