Ruben Loftus-Cheek put in a man of the match display for England against Germany on Friday, as he made his England debut.
The 21-year-old midfielder is currently on loan at Crystal Palace as he looks to gain more Premier League experience and break into Chelsea’s first-team next term.
England boss Gareth Southgate believes that Chelsea players are afraid of the potential of the Chelsea youngster.
The Three Lions boss said: “He has been able to battle through difficult spells at Chelsea, training with senior players who recognise his talent so get into him in training.
“Have they kept him in his place? Yes, I imagine they probably saw the threat.
“This season going out and playing has helped him. In the early season I saw him and he showed flashes of what we saw against Germany. I think he can affect big matches like he did.”
