Chelsea Fans Are P*ssed At Their Clubs Tweet About Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Ruben Loftus Cheek has been in fine form for Crystal Palace and Gareth Southgate

Loftus-Cheek was named Man of the Match for his performance from an attacking midfield position, growing into the role to produce an accomplished creative display.

Many in the English game have been tipping the 20-year-old to shine on the global stage since he was in his early teens, but a combination of nagging injuries and just 32 appearances for Chelsea over three seasons has seen him overtaken by the likes of Dele Alli and, more recently, Harry Winks.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte had not been in touch before his Wembley bow but former England boss Hodgson has given Loftus-Cheek all the worldly advice he needs.

"I'm really not surprised because of what I saw before those boys came in and what I've seen in training". He's got so many good attributes, top attributes, and that's why we put him into the team.

"Tammy [Abraham] and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, as much as they are Chelsea players, they're on-loan somewhere else, they've gone somewhere else", Wright said.

The stats make for good reading as Loftus-Cheek had a 96 percent pass completion rate, completing 50 successful passes out of 52.


"He's quite a quiet lad, so I'm hoping he gets a lift in confidence from how we see him, the level we think he's capable of".

"I don't think the wider public maybe would be as aware of him, you'd have to follow him very closely, but we believe in him and we believe in the others that we played". So for me to get to that next level I needed to play regular football.

Loftus-Cheek looked like a seasoned global on the Wembley turf, pulling off a nutmeg and a Cruyff turn in the first half before being clattered as he played with a real swagger against Joachim Low's silverware-heavy team.

Higginbotham told Premier League Daily: "I know there have been a lot of players that have dropped out for injury and whatever reason". If we do that, the technical type of player that is coming through our system now and the athletic profile we have got could be really exciting.

"There are no guarantees but I feel I have a better chance of playing".
