Hakim Ziyech joined by one other Chelsea teammate in stats-based PL Team of the Week

Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva are the two Chelsea players included in the latest Premier League Team of the Week.

Stats-based website Who Scored included the Chelsea duo after their individual performances in a 2-0 win on Sunday for the Blues against Spurs.

Ziyech, who scored an outrageous stunning goal from outside the box, ranked as the best performing player across the entire division after his weekend display. The left-footed winger received an astonishing 9.23 match rating against Spurs.

In addition, centre-back Silva was included with a 7.93 rating after scoring a header in the London derby.

Elsewhere, there were representatives from Liverpool (two), Wolverhampton Wanderers (two), Brentford (two), Southampton, Newcastle United and Burnley.


Ziyech the Chelsea puzzle?

Ziyech, 28, sent out a real message in his latest Premier League display.

There has never been much doubt about his individual ability, especially after seeing what a success he was at ex-club Ajax. However, the Moroccan winger hasn’t hit his top heights enough times during 18 months as a Blues player on the pitch.

It’s clear Thomas Tuchel’s side need more creativity and goals in the final third, so can Ziyech be the man to solve that puzzle?

He can be vital in the second half of the season based off the last few appearances from him, but he can’t slip back into the old habits of disappearing in some games.

Silky Silva

There is only so much praise you can shower on one individual.

The 37-year-old is turning in superb displays every time he steps on the pitch, so it’s no surprise to see him included in a Team of the Week segment.

His goal highlights what a presence he’s got in both penalty boxes. The way he leads and commands from defence is so impressive, too.

Jody Morris was left in awe of the Brazilian after his latest contribution. He’s definitely not the only one.
