GW8 Lessons: Ziyech good news for managers and Werner

The Scout says winger can replace Spurs' Son and boost FPL potential of Chelsea team-mate

The impact of Hakim Ziyech (£8.1m) on Chelsea’s attack has given Fantasy Premier League managers yet another big-hitting option in midfield.

Ziyech made his first Premier League start in Gameweek 7 but has already scored once and produced three assists in two appearances.

That has earned him hauls of 14 and 11 points against Burnley and Sheffield United respectively.

Ziyech’s rise to prominence comes at a point when owners of Son Heung-min (£9.6m) are considering a replacement due to Tottenham Hotspur’s tough schedule.

Indeed, Son has been transferred out by 128,000+ managers. That makes him the most-sold midfielder ahead of the Gameweek 9 deadline of 11:00 GMT on Saturday 21 November.

Conversely, Ziyech is the most-bought player for Gameweek 9, collecting 275,000+ new owners.

The underlying statistics back up his popularity.

He created four big chances over the last two Gameweeks, more than any other player in Fantasy.

Interestingly, the Moroccan’s impact also looks promising for the prospects of Timo Werner (£9.4m).

Ziyech set up the German’s goal at Burnley and also created a big chance for him against Sheff Utd.

Indeed, Werner has been provided with three big chances in the last two Gameweeks. He had only two in his first six matches.

Upcoming opponents

Chelsea are the top-scoring side in the Premier League, scoring 20 goals in the opening eight Gameweeks.

Frank Lampard’s men have found the net at least three times in six of those matches.

They now face Newcastle United, Spurs, Leeds United and Everton over the next four Gameweeks.

Ziyech has emerged as an enticing option for those fixtures and has improved the prospects of Werner, too.
