After yesterday evening draw vs Burnley at Stamford Bridge, Ruben Loftus-Cheek reveals how Blues’ players are frustrated by this result.
“It feels like a loss in a way because we could have got three points and made a massive jump in the league, but in a way it is a point gained as well because the other teams did not get points at the weekend,” Loftus-Cheek told Chelsea official website. “Burnley did well set-piece wise but we spoke about that in the build-up to the game, so it was disappointing to concede from two set-pieces. It was frustrating because they time-wasted really well but we have to take it and move on. There were some emotions flying at the end because of what was on the line in the game, so I can understand why a lot of players and staff were frustrated, it is why we love football, you get these emotions flying but like I say, move on.”
Despite the draw, Chelsea can still hope to finish their Premier League in one of the top four spots and qualify for the next Champions League. “I don’t think we are in a bad position but it is just down to us to produce our best football in the run-in to the end of the season”. Loftus-Cheek went on. “These games coming up are massive and we need to be at our best. The focus has to be really sharp and we have to be really on it because this is where it really matters.”
