The Morocco winger has made an outstanding start at Stamford Bridge, prompting early comparisons with Hazard, who left a massive void when moving to Real Madrid last year.
Ziyech has a long way to go to come close to emulating the Belgian’s influence and even Frank Lampard admitted last week that he’s reluctant to place too much pressure on the 27-year-old by asking him to fill such sizeable shoes.
But the former Ajax star insists he has no doubt about his qualities – and wants to follow Hazard’s lead.
“Eden is a world-class player and you always take inspiration off how he is playing the game,” he said. “You always look at the small things and how he’s doing stuff. I still can learn a lot from him.
“So far I’m happy. I feel good and I feel home, so those things are the most important things to how you perform on the pitch.
“I always know what I’m capable of doing and I always trust in myself. I am calm in my head and know the other things are coming.
“That’s always why you want to take a bigger step, to challenge yourself with better players around you. I think that’s good for every player.”
Ziyech was part of a £220million spending spree that has transformed Chelsea into title contenders this season, and the midfielder is convinced they have the potential to be champions.
He added: “You always have to believe in it. It starts there - and then just working every day harder.
“We will see what it will bring, but you always have to believe it is possible. That is what we are doing.”
