'I'm Enjoying My Football' - Loftus-Cheek On Chelsea Playing Time Under Tuchel

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has revealed he is happy with his playing time under manager Thomas Tuchel, insisting he is enjoying his football.

The 25-year-old spent last season out on loan to Fulham after falling out of favour at Chelsea.

But since his return, he has made 12 appearances already, three more than his season at Stamford Bridge before he went out on loan.

"We wanted more," he continued. "We had the upper hand most of the game, we had most of the ball, and we had chances we didn’t take.

"They had a few counter-attacks but that was it. It was a scrappy game, very high intensity.

"Both teams wanted to press and put players under pressure, so there were a lot of mistakes, a lot of turnovers in midfield. That’s what you get in big games. The stakes are high and it gets heated.

"We can be disappointed because we felt we could win the game, but it’s a point and we’ll take that."
