The Moroccan scored the only goal of the game for the Blues in their 1-0 win, tapping the ball in from close range after a cross from Callum Hudson-Odoi. 

Victory away from home in Sweden means Chelsea are one step closer to qualifying for the knockout stages of the competition as they look to continue the defence of their European crown. 

Speaking to the media after the game via Football.London, Ziyech admitted he has  struggled to return to his top form, as he said:

"I have had some hard times behind me, I haven't really recovered fully from it. I work every day hard on it. I always believed in myself and things what I can do on the pitch."
He added: "I know what I can do and where my highest level is. I had a tough time with injuries and finding my level again. I have struggled to get into rhythm again but you have to work hard for it."
