Both teams headed into the half with the scores goalless but Chelsea got the opener and the only game of the game about 10 mibminu into the second half as Kai Havertz, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Hakim Ziyech combined to give the Blues the lead.

Speaking to the Chelsea official website, Loftus-Cheek said: “The whole team grew into the game. We started to get used to where we could find space and where the gaps were to penetrate so we could create chances.”

“It was tough for us to break them down and on another day, we would come away with a lot more goals but three points in the main thing.”

“Goals like ours will break down any team with the way we played it, the give-and-gos, it’s hard to stop. With the pace of Callum as well and Hakim arriving in the box, that’s what we do in training and he’s finished it really well.”

After his injury set back in 2019, Loftus-Cheek is now gradually easing his way into the heart of the Chelsea team and his recent performances have always justified his getting opportunities under Thomas Tuchel.
