Chelsea’s lowest rated player against Spurs may lose first team place once again

We know for a fact that Hakim Ziyech was set to leave Chelsea on deadline day, and only ended up staying because of administrative issues.

He then started our next game, somewhat surprisingly, almost as an apology.

After a decent showing he found himself in Graham Potter’s first team plans, where he’s been ever since.

But given the competition for wing minutes, one bad game is enough to put you to the back of the pile, and we fear Sunday’s game may have cost Ziyech on that front.

He got a 5.4 rating on WhoScored for his contribution, the lowest of any outfield player.

Presumably Mykhailo Mudryk will be the next on the merry-go-round, playing opposite Raheem Sterling who has recently won his place back as Potter desperately rolled the dice again.

Christian Pulisic is back now too, which will only make Ziyech’s task harder. He might soon be wishing more than ever that that PSG move had happened.
