"It should be normal for us" - Ruben Loftus-Cheek sets Chelsea demand after emphatic AC Milan victory

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has set his demands for the side following their crucial Champions League win against AC Milan.

The Blues claimed their first win in the competition for the season with a 3-0 victory against the Serie A outfit, who were unbeaten prior to their trip to Stamford Bridge.

Wesley Fofana scored the opener and his first for the club in the first half, but he was unfortunately substituted due to a knee injury.

In the second half, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubled Chelsea’s lead with a close range finish, his second goal for the west London side following his strike against Crystal Palace.

Reece James then capped off an impressive evening with a powerful strike into the roof of the net.

Chelsea are now second in Group E of the Champions League, with four points to their name so far.

After the match Loftus-Cheek, who made his sixth start of the season, spoke to the Chelsea website and shared his thoughts on the result.

“Really delighted,” said the 26-year-old.

“There’s a really good mood in the changing room. Fantastic performance from us, the energy straight from the start. 

“We endured and suffered at times in the game, we had to because they are a decent team but we came through that. 

“We were ruthless with the chances, that’s been the difference. 

“We’ve had many games where we’ve played well but just couldn’t finish it off, tonight we took our chances.”

He then revealed what he thinks the standards should be at the club following their win as they look to reach the knockout stages of the competition.

“That has got to be the standard from now on, we shouldn’t have to say that before each game (starting sharp and on front foot). 

“It should be normal for us to go out with that energy, intensity and sharpness because that is what will make us consistent. 

“We can beat anyone, it’s just about being consistent and we can compete for anything. That’s the challenge for now, we work hard for it.”

Just two points currently separate top and bottom in Group E, with FC Salzburg leading the way and Dinamo Zagreb lying in fourth after three games.

Chelsea will face those two sides and Milan once again in the coming weeks, with a trip to the San Siro awaiting them next week as they set their sights on more European glory.
