Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek gave a strong performance for Fulham, as he came off the bench to make a telling impact for the struggling London side.

With Fulham 3-1 down to Everton, Loftus-Cheek was introduced from the bench, and his impact was instant.

Less than 10 minutes after arriving from the bench, Loftus-Cheek won a penalty which was unfortunately missed.

Loftus-Cheek would eventually score a goal on the 70 minute mark, but there was no third goal for Fulham to make a comeback.

Loftus-Cheek had a very good game, despite just lasting 32 minutes on the pitch.

1 goal
1 penalty won
1 key pass
2/2 dribbles completed
3 fouls won (most in the game)
5/7 duels won

Loftus-Cheek’s goal was his first since scoring in the 2018-19 Europa League semifinal against Eintracht Frankfurt 18 months ago.
