Loftus-Cheek disappointed after dropping points to Burnley as 'it feels like a loss'
- The Blues drew 2-2 with the Clarets on Monday.
- The midfielder insists Chelsea should've won at Stamford Bridge.
- However, he gives credit to Sean Dyche's side for their successful set-pieces.
- The Englishman thinks there was nothing wrong with 'emotions flying at the end' as it's what football is all about.
Chelsea didn't get three points on Monday despite scoring twice at Stamford Bridge. As both Man United and Arsenal lost to Everton and Crystal Palace respective, the Blues had a great chance to extended their lead in the race for the top four. Ruben Loftus-Cheek was disappointed with the outcome of the clash as he said after the final whistle:
"It feels like a loss in a way because we could have got three points and made a massive jump in the league, but in a way it is a point gained as well because the other teams did not get points at the weekend."

David Luiz accused the Clarets of 'anti-football' for their time-wasting in the second half. Loftus-Cheek, nonetheless, gave credit to the opponent: "Burnley did well set-piece wise but we spoke about that in the build-up to the game, so it was disappointing to concede from two set-pieces. It was frustrating because they time-wasted really well but we have to take it and move on."
Maurizio Sarri was sent off after leaving the dugout as he heard the insults coming from the opposition's bench. However, the Blues' midfielder believes football is all about emotions: "There were some emotions flying at the end because of what was on the line in the game, so I can understand why a lot of players and staff were frustrated, it is why we love football, you get these emotions flying but like I say, move on."
