Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-cheek feels that his club should not dwell on yesterday’s result against Liverpool ahead of their upcoming fixtures. Chelsea tasted defeat at Anfield for the first time in 7 years thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
Speaking of the result, Loftus-cheek said, “It’s a really tough result to take. When you have a game like this — and with the negative press — it’s a skill to be able to deal with it and move on very quickly and take the positives out of it. I think that’s what we have to do as a team and as individuals, to keep a positive mind-frame. We can’t dwell on this, we’ve got games coming that are really important. So we have to move on.
[The midfield battle] was really difficult. The way they play is really difficult to defend — a lot of running! — and a lot of talking needs to go on because there’s a lot of movement, which was a challenge for us.”
Chelsea next face Slavia Prague before resuming their league campaign against Burnley next Monday.
