With Mason Mount, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic during well in midfield for Chelsea, Ruben Loftus-Cheek may not find it easy walking straight back into the Chelsea team.

The 23 year old midfielder is close to making his injury comeback.

Loftus-Cheek has been used in several positions across midfield but he insists his best position is as a box-to-box midfielder.

Loftus-Cheek told Versus: “I’m most effective as a box-to-box midfielder. Getting up and down, creating and also defending.

“I’ve played in a number of positions because I’m versatile so it’s easy for managers to move me around. I played left and right midfield at Palace but I managed to do well.

“That’s cool when you’re coming up but as I’m maturing I kind of want to nail down one position and hopefully that position is box-to-box.”
