Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger is looking forward to the chance to bounce back in the Premier League with a win over Fulham.

He also feels the team just needs to keep doing the things that gave them such an impressive start to the season.

However, while Rudiger is keen to make sure there are no mistakes as against Spurs, the German international is quick to point out there is no need to make wholesale changes to how the plays after such a good opening to 2018/19.

He told Chelsea official website:

‘‘Just because of one game we don’t need to break our heads,’ said the defender.

‘We need to take positives because until that game we were still unbeaten and if anyone had said that this would happen, I think 90 per cent would have said ‘no’. So we just need to stay focused and try to make this not happen again.”

‘‘If we look back at this match many things didn’t go well, but there’s no use trying to look for excuses. It was a bad game and we need to learn from this because it was a huge lesson.”

‘‘Of course the manager was disappointed but that’s normal after such a game. At the end of the day we don’t want to lose games, but sometimes we do.’’
