Chelsea ace Ruben Loftus-Cheek is ready to wait for his time for regular role in the starting line-up.

Loftus-Cheek was a regular starter for Crystal Palace while on loan and he also earned a call for England in the World Cup.

Under the new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri the midfielder has found it extremely difficult to get a starring role under the Italian coach, but he is prepared for any chance that comes his way.

"We're winning nearly every game now and Chelsea are one of the best clubs so there are going to be top players in the starting XI," he told Sky Sports in an interview alongside team-mate Ethan Ampadu.

"I think it's down to us to work hard and keep improving as much as we can in training - even though we're not playing - and to try and stay sharp because you might get an opportunity.

"Someone gets injured and you have to be ready so it's up to us to have the right mentality during the weeks.

"We still feel part of the group. We're a team, we're there at every game and encouraging the starting XI if we're on the bench so I think it's important that we don't have any negative energy around the team.

"We're doing so well at the minute and we need to keep that positivity in the team.”

He made two early season substitute appearances in the Premier League but has not been included in the last three matchday squads.

Speaking about getting starts in the top flight, he added: "It's important for a young player to get starts in the Premier League. I experienced that last season and I made a big step in my career in terms of being in the England squad so starts were a big thing."
