Ziyech scores hat-trick, Rahman with an assist as Chelsea rout Peterborough

The 28-year-old netted an impressive hat-trick as the Blues roared to a comfortable win in the friendly staged at Cobham

Chelsea forward Hakim Ziyech came off the bench to score thrice as they started their pre-season with a 6-1 friendly win against Peterborough United on Saturday.

The friendly at the club’s training base in Cobham saw manager Thomas Tuchel give 22 players playing time but it was the 28-year-old Morocco international who impressed after coming on as a second-half substitute.

Tammy Abraham opened the scoring for Chelsea before Christian Pulisic scored the second from a spot-kick that he had won for a 2-1 half-time lead, after Peterborough had opened the scoring through a penalty of their own.
