Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has hinted that he may give Ruben Loftus-Cheek a chance against Aston Villa in midweek.

The midfielder has been a peripheral figure for the Blues so far this season, after returning from a loan spell last term.

Asked if Loftus-Cheek would get a chance in the Carabao Cup against Villa on Wednesday, Tuchel suggested he would get game time, as he was trusted by the coaching staff.

Tuchel told reporters: "We gave him some minutes against Zenit [St. Petersburg].

"That was a close game, a Champions League opener for us and that wasn't a gift.

"I trust him because I see how he works and he adapts to his situation and what he makes out of it.

"He is very, very good on training. Tomorrow, there's a big chance he can show it on the pitch."
