Chelsea youngster Loftus-Cheek pleased to play for Hiddink

Ruben Loftus-Cheek says things at Chelsea are going well under interim manager Guus Hiddink.

The Blues are two wins and two draws from four matches under the Dutchman since he took over from Jose Mourinho and teenage midfielder Loftus-Cheek insists it is a pleasure to play under the experienced tactician.

"I'm really pleased to play for him, he's a really nice man as well as a good manager," Loftus-Cheek said on BT Sport.

"It's been different, obviously with a change of managers but we've got to get on with it and I feel we did really well."

The 19-year-old scored his first ever goal for the London club when sweeping home Cesar Azpilicueta's cross in the 68th minute to add to Diego Costa's earlier opener in the 2-0 FA Cup third round win over Scunthorpe United at Stamford Bridge.
