Hakim Ziyech returned to goal-scoring form as he netted for the first time in almost three months to secure victory for Chelsea.
Chelsea squeezed past a stubborn Malmo side on Tuesday in their Champions League group-stage clash
However, with the Moroccan international scoring the only goal of the game.
But manager Thomas Tuchel has warned he still expects more from the winger, despite netting the winner.
‘Could this help Ziyech kick on? Yes, but still I think there is space to improve in his decision making’
‘Connections on the pitch, where to be more consistent,’ Tuchel said after the final whistle on Tuesday, via Goal.
‘We always rely on his work-rate, counter pressing, awareness. It is a huge part of his performances’
‘He can still be more clinical and maybe grow more into the rhythm but I think his shoulder injury hurt him a lot’
‘Even if he pushed hard to come back early, he is not still 100 per cent free as he should be, especially the offensive players love their freedom of turning but I am happy that if things get stuck, a goal like this will help the most. I am happy for him.’
