Chelsea will take on Leeds United at Elland Road tonight, looking to put their disappointing 2-2 draw with Wolves behind them.
Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek has stated that the team had a “talk amongst themselves” ahead of tonight’s Premier League away trip to Leeds United. The Blues midfielder has spoken out about the frustration of losing a two-goal lead to Wolves on Saturday.
At Stamford Bridge, Romelu Lukaku scored a quick-fire brace to put Chelsea 2-0 up, but late goals from Francisco Trincao and Conor Coady meant the points were shared in the capital. The Blues have a quick turnaround as they travel to Elland Road tonight evening to face Leeds, who are fighting for survival towards the bottom of the Premier League table.
Loftus-Cheek, who is enjoying a rare run in the Chelsea starting lineup, has now spoken about a meeting between the Blues’ players to ensure everyone was on the same page. With a win tonight, the squad will be one step closer to securing a place in the Champions League next season.
Loftus-Cheek The next day, we returned to the training site, and I don’t believe the players perceived it as a punishment. We walked in and rested. When there is a short turnaround to another game, it is sometimes preferable to do so. We had a quick talk to make sure we were all on the same page and on the same wavelength heading into the Leeds game. It’s critical that we stick together.”
Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel was asked about his team’s recent habit of squandering leads, and the German was visibly irritated with his team’s performance. “This is always irritating. It will never cease bothering you “Tuchel explained.
