Hakim Ziyech has booked the third victory in a row in the Premier League with Chelsea on Saturday. Manager Frank Lampard’s team won 0-2 at Newcastle United.
Chelsea took the lead at St. James’ Park after ten minutes by an own goal from Federico Fernández. The defender worked a cross from Mason Mount (ex-Vitesse) from close range behind his own goalkeeper Karl Darlow.
It stayed at that for a long time, after which Tammy Abraham took the tension out of the game in the 65th minute. The 23-year-old striker worked through the inside of the post after a nice rush from Timo Werner, which he started on his own half.
Ziyech, important in the last two league matches with a goal and three assists, was again at the kick-off at Chelsea. The Moroccan international made way for Olivier Giroud in the 87th minute.
It was the third league win and fifth in a row for ‘The Blues’. Lampard’s team did not lose a game in the Premier League after the defeat against Liverpool (0-2) on 20 September and are now in the lead with eighteen points. The competitors still have to take action.
