Hakim Ziyech can play quite a number of roles, and he has played as a No. 10 in previous years before switching out to the wings.

New Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel used the Moroccan international as an inside forward in the game against Wolves, and Ziyech has revealed that it’s his favourite position.

He told the official Chelsea website in an interview: “It is a position where I love to play, without the ball having your responsibility but with the ball being free and trying to find space and trying to play football.

“That is what I like the most. Get between the lines, find space, between the lines with the one or two touches. Especially in that position you have a lot of options because is the defender coming out, yes or no?

“If he is not coming you can turn around and find the striker or the left winger or the right winger in space. You have a lot of options.”

Ziyech was given a full rest against Burnley, and it would be interesting to see where he’d be featured against Tottenham on Thursday.
