Chelsea midfielder Loftus-Cheek: My best position is...

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek feels he's good enough to play in the middle of the pitch.

Loftus-Cheek is recovering from Achilles surgery.

“I'm most effective as a box-to-box midfielder," he told Versus.

“Getting up and down, creating and also defending.

“I've played in a number of positions because I'm versatile so it's easy for managers to move me around.

“I played left and right midfield at Palace but I managed to do well.

“That's cool when you're coming up but as I'm maturing I kinda want to nail down one position and hopefully that position is box to box."
