Ruben Loftus-Cheek has hailed the Chelsea squad’s willingness to put the club’s objectives ahead of individual aims and is adamant there are actually no egos at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have been in impressive form this season and Loftus-Cheek feels Antonio Conte has played a significant part in their resurgence, stressing the players generally do what ever their coach tells them.
“There are no egos,” the young midfielder, who featured in Sunday’s 4-1 FA Cup win over Peterborough United, told the club’s official website.
“Wherever we are asked to play we will do that to the greatest of our capability.
“In all positions we can play effectively and we are versatile. We saw Pedro play as a wing-back on Sunday against Peterborough.”
Loftus-Cheek played 70 minutes in the weekend triumph against League One Peterborough and was pleased with his showing.
“I thought I did very nicely and I really enjoyed getting out on the pitch,” he added.
“When the cup games come about the players who’ve not played a great deal normally get a possibility, so it was good for me to obtain an opportunity.
“We had pretty a whole lot of possibilities and we did not take all of them, I missed 1 too but that occurs. We got some goals so we can’t be disappointed and we move on for the subsequent round.”
The 20-year-old has made 4 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea this term.
