The Blues were in action against Dinamo Zagreb as they looked forward to qualify for the next round in the Champions League. The Blues had kicked off this season with a poor run in the Champions League. They picked themselves up and ended up winning back to back.
In yesterday’s match against Zagreb, they Blues were the better side where they created multiple chances in the early minutes of the game. Dinamo opened the scoring in the 7th minute. Chelsea responded ten minutes later through Rahim Sterling. Zakaria who has been starting from the bench in most matches added the second one one in the 30th minute to give Chelsea the lead.
Chelsea ended up maintaining their lead where they won all the three points by the final whistle. In that match, one of the Chelsea star who impressed is Zakaria. The Chelsea midfielder has been starting from the bench in most matches.
Yesterday, he was given a chance to start where he ended up delivering an impressive performance scoring the winning goal. His top performance proved he can be of great help to the Blues midfield especially this season where Kante is struggling with injuries.
This now means that Graham Porter might find it hard to bench Zakaria following his top performance yesterday against Dinamo Zagreb.
