(Video): Thomas Tuchel gives his thoughts on Ruben Loftus-Cheek ahead of Carabao Cup game

There are a few players left in the Chelsea squad who we expected to be loaned out, including Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

It seemed like this might lead to a season in the shadows, but he got a minute off the bench against Zenit last week in the Champions League, and now Thomas Tuchel has hinted he might feature in the Carabao Cup too.

He pointed out that “we trust him” and that his appearance “was not a gift.” We can’t wait to see how RLC operates under TT, and tomorrow could be the start of something very interesting.
