Former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has hailed Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech following his impressive performance in Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Ziyech opened the scoring with a stunning effort from range two minutes into the second-half as Chelsea sealed a 2-0 win over London rivals Tottenham on Sunday.

“He has a temperamental player, he is someone who wears his heart on his sleeve,” Hasselbaink told Sky Sports.

‘But he has got character and you have got to be able to manage that. That happens with good players and he is one of them.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has hailed Ziyech’s performance against Tottenham Hotspur as one of his best for Chelsea.

“Maybe it was his best game, it was a very good game overall,” Tuchel said of Ziyech.

“He took the risk where it was possible, he was safe when it was possible to be safe.

“It’s probably the best position for him, we don’t normally have this position in a 3-4-3. The overlap gave him the space and the strike was brilliant.”
