Ruben Loftus-Cheek says Chelsea are continuing to show the confidence they have however know improvement is still needed.
Chelsea earned their sixth Premier League win of the season in their eighth outing against Brentford on Saturday evening. Ben Chilwell's half-volley was the difference in the west London derby to seal a 1-0 win.

What Ruben Loftus-Cheek said
Speaking to Chelsea TV on Brentford and overcoming the league's new-boys: “There’s a lot of confidence in the team to withstand that kind of pressure in an away stadium, against an in-form team. A lot of top teams have come here and not done well, which we didn’t do well for 15-20 minutes but for the majority of the game we did very well, we controlled the tempo, dominated the game.
"We can take positives, but we need to look at the last 20 minutes where we lost our shape and everything went into panic mode. We move on, Champions League next."
