Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has discussed Ruben Loftus-Cheek's pre-season performances following the Blues' 2-1 victory against Arsenal at the Emirates. Goals from Kai Havertz and Tammy Abraham secured the win as Loftus-Cheek played over an hour. Speaking following the match,

 Tuchel opened up on his thoughts regarding Loftus-Cheek's performances. 


Tuchel sent the 25-year-old a message as he said: "Generally, I am happy and that's why he plays, he deserves to play at this point of the preparation. But I think he can do even more, he can show up more. "He can show more physical capability and drive more with the ball.

 I'm never satisfied with him, I have the feeling we need to pushing him to the absolute limit.

" Loftus-Cheek has been linked with a loan move to the Bundesliga in order to get his career back on track but with the Academy graduate 'determined' to impress in pre-season, he could be handed a first team chance. 


The midfielder played 45 minutes in Chelsea's pre-season game against Bournemouth and completed an hour against Arsenal at the Emirates. With the Blues playing Tottenha Hotspur in the Mind Series final match at Stamford Bridge, Loftus-Cheek will be looking to gain minutes ahead of the 2021/22 season. 

 
What else did the Chelsea boss say about Loftus-Cheek? "It's too early to judge Ruben," said Tuchel post-match at the Emirates. "He has everything in his hands and it's on him to decide his own future like every player. He has to keep on going 150% because 100% is not enough."
