(Video): “Fighting and long balls” – Hakim Ziyech explains why Watford game was so tough for Chelsea players

Chelsea really had to dig deep and give their all to get past Watford last night, and after the game match winner Hakim Ziyech explained to Chelsea TV why it was such a slog.

His expression “fighting and long balls” summed up the match pretty perfectly, and it was great to see him and his teammates rise to the challenge rather than shrink away from it.

There are plenty more games like this to come – so they’d better get used to it sooner rather than later. We play West Ham on Saturday in the early kick off…
