Video: Hakim Ziyech shows superb close control to score first Chelsea goal vs Krasnodar

In the 78th minute of the Champions League tie against Krasnodar, Hakim Ziyech sealed his first start for Chelsea by taking his first goal for the club in a classy style.

The move was sparked after Mason Mount won a header on the left-wing, with the ball rolling down to Christian Pulisic.

Pulisic skipped down the wing before slipping in Timo Werner, with the scorer of Chelsea’s second then cutting it across to Ziyech.

Ziyech showed his quality ability to control the powerful ball before squeezing past a Krasnodar defender and drilling the ball into the back of the net from close range.
