“Young king” – Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech praises Manchester United’s player for his performance against Liverpool

Following his performance against Liverpool, Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech heaped praise on Manchester United left-back Tyrell Malacia.

Malacia made his first start for the Red Devils since joining from Feyenoord in the summer, replacing the injured Luke Shaw at left-back.

The young defender received widespread praise for his performance against the Reds. He played a key role in Erik ten Hag’s side’s 2-1 victory and well-deserved three points.

Many praised the pacy Netherlands international for his performance, which included keeping superstar Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah quiet.

Chelsea winger Ziyech, who posted a message of support on Malacia’s Instagram page, was one of the stars who were impressed by his full debut.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the winger posted a photo of the child on his Instagram story with the caption “young king” and a flame and applauding emoji.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Ten Hag is keen to sign Ziyech this summer to bolster his attacking options, with Manchester United considering a loan move.

With only one appearance this season, the Moroccan international appears to be at the bottom of the Chelsea pecking order.

Lisandro Martinez was another Red Devils defender who stood out against Jurgen Klopp’s men. 

During United’s humiliating 4-0 defeat at Brentford, the Argentine centre-half was questioned about his lack of height and was hooked at half-time.

However, the defender put in a strong performance to keep Liverpool’s famed front three at bay. Both new signings impressed United legend Rio Ferdinand, who told Vibe with FIVE (as quoted by The Manchester Evening News):

“I think (Martinez) carries on with this team, because I think he [Ten Hag] saw enough in that first 45 that would’ve made him go; ‘You know what, that’s a bit of me’.

“All through the game, Martinez was out to people, getting up to people, being a nuisance, there’s a bit of Gabby Heinze in him, but not as rash. I really like the look of him.”

Ferdinand further added:

“He might get isolated and targeted by teams with strikers, but will then have to work out ways to do it. If he can perform to the standard he did last night, what a big, big, big signing it could be. Malacia was also tremendous, outstanding – the whole back four were brilliant.”
