Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech has been in and out of the Chelsea team this season, but his current form has endeared him to the Chelsea fans who have been impressed with his recent performances.

Ziyech has made eight appearances in the Premier League this season but only started in four of those games, including in the 3-2 defeat to West Ham on Saturday.

Injuries at certain times this season has limited Ziyech’s involvement in the team this season, coupled with the amount of competition in the squad.

However, the Moroccan international actually believes he’s in the manager’s best XI.

“I think so,” the Morocco international told Dutch outlet Ziggo Sport (via Voetbalzone) on whether he is in Chelsea’s best XI.

“You know that at a top club there is a lot of competition, that’s normal. Every player under contract here wants to play as much as possible. That is the same for me.

“I have to show why I have to play. In that respect, I’m on the right track.”
