Following the Saturday draw with Wolves, Thomas Tuchel cancelled the Chelsea squad’s day off, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek thinks they did not feel penalised.

On Saturday, the Blues let a two-goal advantage slip through their fingers, with Francisco Trincao and Conor Coady goals saving a 2-2 draw for the visitors.

Chelsea is now one point ahead of Arsenal and five points ahead of Tottenham with three games remaining in the season.

Tuchel responded by canceling Sunday’s post-match day and demanding that his players return to training.

‘You’d love to have a game done in the 60th minute but you rarely get that in this league,’ the midfielder told Sky Sports. ‘We went into the training ground the next day.

‘I don’t think the players saw it as a punishment at all. We came in and recovered. Sometimes it’s better to do that when there’s a short turnaround to another game.

‘We had a chat amongst ourselves just to make sure we’re all on the same page and the same wavelength going into the Leeds game. It’s important for us to stay together.’
