(Video): “He is in a very strong moment” – Thomas Tuchel hails one comeback player’s form

Chelsea were lucky to win against Brentford, with the Blues relying on their defence to get the job done.

One player who did do well however was Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and after the game Thomas Tuchel explained why he’d trusted the midfielder to carry on where he left off against Southampton before the international break.

“He is in a very strong moment,” noted Tuchel explaining that he didn’t want to disrupt the good form the academy product had been showing in recent weeks.
