Ruben Loftus-Cheek has featured in Chelsea‘s last three consecutive games scoring four goals.
The England international’s improvement under Maurizio Sarri looks clearly visible, as assistant coach Gianfranco Zola assessed earlier in a press conference ahead of the 3-2 win. “Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are following his instructions very well” he said.
Loftus-Cheek said: “Derby County pressed quite well. It was difficult for us to play out. Credit to them, they were physical, but we just said at half-time we need to step it up because they were playing well, and we needed to be more aggressive and be braver to play out from the back. They gave us a really tough game”.
