Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was drawn to the future of midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek after his side’s victory against Arsenal this evening.
Abraham makes the difference
Of course, the retirees were back in action recently.
As Tuchel and Co. are intensifying the preparations for the upcoming season, the capital city teams made their way to the Emirates to experience a derby showdown with Arsenal.
And when all was said and done in north London, Chelsea scored two wins out of two in the preseason.
Kai Havertz got the guests on their way in the first half hour, only Granit Xhaka was able to equalize with a rare header after a corner from Nicolas Pepe.
A little more than 15 minutes before the end, however, was the crucial moment of the game.
After substitute Hector Bellerin had given up the ball unnecessarily on the edge of the Arsenal area, Tammy Abraham fell, who found the lower right corner of Bernd Leno’s net without making a mistake.

After the Emirates duel took place in the form of a friendly match that evening, several fringe stars from each club got the chance to impress their respective managers, as usual.
Among those performing for Chelsea were Baba Rahman, Michy Batshuayi and Malang Sarr.
However, during a post-game media session following Sunday’s full-time whistle, Blues boss Thomas Tuchel was instead dragged onto the future of another of his disgraced stars – Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Midfielder Loftus-Cheek was loaned again last season and made 21 Premier League starts amid a move at Fulham, who has since been relegated.
Again, it was not a big surprise when Tuchel was urged whether RLC could stay tuned for the coming season.
However, the German was reluctant to answer and simply stated:
“It’s too early to judge Ruben. He’s got everything in his hands and it’s up to him, like every player, to decide his future. ‘
