Four Chelsea players have impressed Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel during preseason training as the Blues prepare for the new season.
Tuchel has worked with several academy players and players returning from loan spells during the preseason training.
According to Football.London, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Armando Broja and Dujon Sterling have all impressed the German boss with their displays in pre-season training.
Tuchel has previously revealed preseason performances will decide whether players leave on loan or stay with the first-team.
Tuchel said: “I have never had that (so many loan players at his disposal) before. That was new, I was not scared about it, but I was curious to see how the mentality is because don’t forget, some of them leave their families behind, some of them want to stay in their loan clubs, some of them have not that possibility.
“It’s a very positive group, hardworking, full of desire to learn, hungry in every training session and ready to go. It’s such a good mix with the five or six guys who were with us here in the last half-a-year.
“I don’t judge on where they (players) come from or what their history is, or what they earn or what their status is. I’m in charge of this group so they get my 100 per cent. I give my everything, they give it back, they make me smile, I give even more, that makes them smile, they give even more.
“These guys are full of talent, and now it’s on us to push them to their highest level possible. Then, we will decide is this in the moment good enough for us, does this help us, is it better for the player to go on loan or get sold. This comes as the last step in this give and take.”
