Chelsea have many jewels in their youth team crown with players such as Patrick Bamford, Dominic Solanke and Nathaniel Chalobah. Imposing midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek could just be the icing on the cake. The midfielder has so much maturity, composure and guile beyond his 19 years.
With his man of the match performance in the Champions League a few weeks ago, Mourinho is ready to give him a run of games, as he could be the saviour of the midfield crisis that Chelsea are having Fabregas, Matic and Obi Mikel under performing. Loftus-Cheek is an all-round midfielder, who can dribble past players like they’re not there while retaining the potential of a ball winner such as Patrick Vieira. Don’t be surprised if Loftus-Cheek takes the footballing world by storm as he has already been around the England youth set up for a while now.
Loftus-Cheek could go on to have a hugely successful career and create a formidable partnership for England with Ross Barkley.
