When Ruben Loftus-Cheek is feeling good, it’s great news for Chelsea fans but bad news for opponents.
The Chelsea midfielder has been speaking to the Chelsea website today and says he plays at his best when he is feeling good in himself and physically, and right now, he is feeling as good as he’s ever felt.

The England midfielder has been having a fantastic season with Chelsea so far and he will soon be looking to earn his place back in the England team as well.
After being out for a long time with a serious achilles injury, Loftus-Cheek says he has put that behind him and no longer thinking or worrying about it when he is playing out on the pitch.
He believes this why he is now playing much better and getting regular minutes for Chelsea, something he believed he would always get.
“I’ve always believed that I could make it but there have just been a lot of setbacks along the way,” he explains.
“Despite that, I’ve always believed that I could play for Chelsea regularly.
“For me, it’s just about staying injury-free and I’ve been that for over a year now for the first time in my career. There’s something I can take from that and I’m really happy with myself.
“The extra work that I’m doing is keeping me on the pitch and available to play, which is the most important thing. On top of that, I have to do the work and play well on the pitch, which always feels natural for me anyway. When I’m feeling good, I generally perform well.
“In my head, I’ve left that Achilles injury behind. I still have to do stuff to keep it strong and healthy but day-to-day in training and games it doesn’t come into my head anymore.
“It’s a thing of the past. I feel really good, as good as I’ve ever felt, and I believe I’ve passed that point in my life now.”
