Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has revealed what the Blues should expect when we face Burnley at Stamford Bridge later today.
Loftus-Cheek has plenty of experience of facing the Clarets and knows what they do well, qualities Thomas Tuchel’s side must be wary of this afternoon if we are to go into the final international break of the year with our lead at the top of the Premier League intact.
“It’s a tough, physical game where the ball is in the air a lot,” Loftus-Cheek told Chelsea’s official website about Burnley.
“We’ll have to challenge and win our individual duels. Burnley are very good at what they do and they can hit you at any time with balls in behind.
“They have these big, strong strikers that are a nuisance so we have to be ready for that but I’m sure everyone in the team knows that if we perform and play to our best then we should win.”
