“Maybe it was his best game, it was a very good game overall,” Thomas Tuchel told BBC Sport about Hakim Ziyech.
“He took the risk where it was possible, he was safe when it was possible to be safe.
“It’s probably the best position for him, we don’t normally have this position in a 4-3-3. The overlap gave him the space and the strike was brilliant.”
“I was right behind! I had the feeling it was a bit too high but it dropped at the right second. It was a brilliant goal. His technique was brilliant,” Tuchel added in a separate interview with Sky Sports.
Ziyech’s stunning goal at the start of the second half was undoubtedly the highlight of Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Spurs in the Premier League.
The Moroccan was the star of the show even without that goal, as he created several great opportunities for his teammates who could not get to the end of his crosses.
