Newcastle interested in loan deal for Loftus-Cheek

Newcastle interested in loan deal for Loftus-Cheek

When Sarri opted to make a second-half change in search of an equaliser following Wolves' impressive turnaround, it was not Loftus-Cheek but N'Golo Kante who made way for Mateo Kovacic.

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is open to leaving on loan in the January transfer window if he is not given first-team assurances, according to The Mirror.

In the first 10 minutes of the second half, we could've scored four or five goals.

And Wolves and Chelsea fans will be able to watch all of the action then. "After the first goal, that was an accident because we were in control of the match, we were suddenly another team, without our distances and without our football".

"The result is very hard for this because I know very well in every match you need points".

The Blues are now seven points behind league leaders Manchester City and Maurizio Sarri will be hoping to pick up an easy victory against an underperforming Wolves side.

He added: "It depends on the mentality of the team, I think".

"Maybe it was important for the result but not for me".

"I am really very anxious, not for the result, but for the fact we did not respond to the first goal", the Chelsea boss added. "We didn't react at all so I am really very anxious for this, not the result".

The Chelsea boss will be rotating some players for the game especially with a game against Manchester City coming up next weekend.

He said: "Manchester City are in another category". We have to play and we have to fight to be in the top four, I think.

"We can lose a match, but not without a reaction".

Chelsea FC are looking to finish in the top four this season after the Blues ended up in fifth spot last term.
