Loftus-Cheek shares what Tuchel told him about his new midfield role

Ruben Loftus-Cheek completed 90 Premier League minutes in a Chelsea shirt for the first time since May 2019. The midfielder is in fine form and starting him paid off as his ball-carrying ability was in full display in the Brentford win.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Loftus-Cheek revealed what Tuchel told him about his role: “He says: ‘If I play this position, be strong, use my body, dominate physically and play how I play’. I think if you overthink stuff, things can go bad.

“I’ve played football all my life, it’s just about playing how you normally do and not overthinking, and have fun – that’s the main thing. I think we forget sometimes with all the pressure and having to win, we have to enjoy it as well.”

With a 90 per cent pass completion rate, a 6.8 per cent share of possession and three successful tackles, it was a top performance for Loftus-Cheek who will surely get more playing time now.
