Chelsea youngster Traore learning plenty from Costa, Loftus-Cheek partnerships

Chelsea young gun Bertrand Traore has enjoyed playing in the two-striker system employed by manager Antonio Conte during pre-season.

The 20-year-old admitted that this system has been different to what he has been used to, but he has learned a lot playing alongside the likes of Diego Costa and fellow youngster Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

"This is a little bit different," he told Chelseafc.com.

"In the past with a partner I have been playing like a no.10, just behind the striker. Now we play in the same line so it is a little different but I am enjoying it.

"I have started two games with Diego and two games with Ruben and both partnerships were good. I think we played well together.

"As young players it is important to play in different positions and I think Ruben is enjoying it as much as I am."
