“Most important is that I feel Ruben (Loftus-Cheek) and Ross (Barkley) at the moment feel no pressure,” he said in his post-match press conference.

“They are happy to have these chances, to feel the support, and perhaps six weeks ago they couldn’t have imagined they were in the situation to get real minutes, important minutes.

“For Ross, we hoped he could show what he shows in training. He is very active, does not feel the pressure and is always ready to create something. He has a strong right foot and has sharp passing.

“We hope he could create or shoot from distance and increase the pressure around the box.”
