The Blues agreed a £36.6million deal with Ajax for the Morocco international back in February, but he only made his first team debut last month after picking up a knee injury in pre-season.
Since then, Ziyech has dazzled on the right-hand side of Chelsea’s front three. The 27-year-old continued his fine start to life at Stamford Bridge with his excellent deliveries setting up goals for Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva at the weekend.
And former Chelsea winger Nevin admitted he saw glimpses of two of the west London club’s heroes, Hazard and Fabregas, in Ziyech’s game.
‘Most of us Chelsea-minded types were impressed already but by the time he walked off the park after destroying Sheffield United on Saturday, he had gained millions more fans,’ Nevin told Chelsea’s official website.
‘Okay, so it was ‘only the Blades’ some might say and yes, things will be tougher against the likes of Man City and Liverpool, but he has enough technical ability to live and thrive very easily in that company too I reckon.
‘We will find out soon enough, but it is noticeable how many chances we appear to be making and indeed scoring since Ziyech started against Krasnodar. We have played four games and have a current running scoreline of 14-1!
‘He can score as well as creating but it is that ability to see gaps and deliver the ball into them that is the most noticeable thing at the moment.’
