Loftus-cheek: “We have to manage the pressure “

Chelsea defeated Norwich City Courtesy of an Olivier Giroud header on the stroke of halftime.

After Tuesday game, the blues are left with games against Liverpool (A) and Wolves (H), and RLC has warned his teammates against any potential slip up as their Champions league fate remains in their hands.

"We have to manage the pressure," 

"We’re used to it playing for Chelsea, that comes with it. We have to do the job, and we really want to be in the Champions League next year so we’ll give it our all.

"We have two really tough games against Liverpool and Wolves to come, so it’s in our hands. We don’t want to be reliant on other results to put us through to the Champions League. We’re in a good position. We have got to nail it down and give it our all."

Loftus-cheek was just Starting for the second time after rupturing his Achilles in May 2019

"I feel like I’m improving. My game’s coming on. I was really happy to start and get some more minutes.

"This injury is a lot different to previous ones I have had, and the explosiveness is still to come, but I’m getting there."

The Englishman also praised Giroud after his goal at end of the firsthalf proved to be the match winner.

"He’s really important for us. He’s a finisher, a poacher in the box, which is what we need at the moment when teams are sitting back and defending against us.

"You always have a chance to sling it in the box and Oli might be there to put it in. Great team player."
