Loftus-Cheek has been deployed in midfield, including the no.6 position, a new role for the Chelsea star. But he is relishing every minute on the pitch and believes the variety of roles he has played throughout his development have benefitted him this season.

“Playing in all those (different) positions have made me the player I am today," Loftus-Cheek told Sky Sports. "This position (no.6) was new to me. When I was young I started at the six, then to centre-back, then I moved up, no.10, striker, left-wing, right-wing with Palace. So, I have developed. 

"This position is different, more holding sometimes. But I enjoy it, anywhere in the midfield is where I prefer. It’s my favourite to play and I’m most effective in midfield. To play in that position for Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel, I can’t complain at all.”
