Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech has given high praise when asked about three of his attacking teammates, claiming it’s “really exciting” to work alongside them.
Ziyech, 27, is being slowly integrated into the Blues side after returning from injury and he’s now made his first two appearances for the club with cameo roles off the bench in the past week.
The left-footed attacker is being tipped to form an exciting combination alongside Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic and Timo Werner.
Ziyech was asked about the potential partnership with his three attacking teammates.
“Kai and Timo they are two big talents and I think they already proved that in the past with what they did with their clubs before,” Ziyech said in his press conference, as quoted by the club’s official Youtube account.
“Christian is also one of the biggest talents. For Christian he’s already worked longer here than us so you see what he’s capable of doing on the pitch. It’s really exciting to work with them. I can’t wait to be on the pitch fully fit just doing our things.”
A lot of Chelsea fans are imagining a new-look attack at Stamford Bridge, which consists of plenty of pace and creativity.
Ziyech is a right-winger that loves to cut inside to create, while 22-year-old Pulisic is a speedster that is so dangerous operating as a left-winger.
The two wide man could provide such a dangerous partnership, while German duo Havertz and Werner have shown some exciting glimpses at the beginning of their Chelsea careers.
Havertz, 21, is a technical playmaker that is effective in a creative number 10 role, while 24-year-old centre-forward Werner is so dangerous running behind defences.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has had the quartet on the pitch at the same time together, but injuries have prevented them all starting and it’s a combination that sure needs to be tested moving forward.
There are plenty of other options in the squad that are going to be important during the course of the season, but supporters are crying out to see a newly-shaped frontline.
