Hakim Ziyech has been a class player so far for Chelsea this season, and some has even hailed him as the replacement for former Blues star Eden Hazard.

Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has even hailed Ziyech as a mix of Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas after a fine start to life at the club.

Ziyech has now responded to the Hazard comparisons, and while he said he is his own player, he also admitted that he studies Hazard’s game.

“Eden is a world-class player,” Ziyech told The Telegraph.

“You always take inspiration from that, how he plays the game and you always look at the small things, how he does stuff and I can learn a lot from him.

“I’m happy, I feel good. I feel at home and those things are the most important when you perform on the pitch.

“I always know what I’m capable of doing. I always trust in myself, I’m calm in my head. Peaceful. And all the other things will come by themselves.”
