Series Abíọ́dún ☻: “Loftus-Cheek my MOTM. He channeled his inner Mikel Obi with a touch of Yaya Toure today.”

Simon Phillips: “Vintage Loftus-Cheek tonight. By that I mean the 2018 version that bossed the England midfield in the World Cup finals. The come back is on, he canot be ignored!”

Goatalo: “Ruben Loftus Cheek is what we all expected Saul to be, so i guess its better call Ruben then”

Andrew Williams: “Loftus-Cheek deserves to be playing ahead of Saul.”

Tom Overend: “My MOTM tonight for the game itself was Ruben Loftus-Cheek. From what I could see, he was a lot deeper than usual and I thought he was so effective in that role.”

STAN: “But if we are keeping it real,there was no point getting Saul on loan,Ruben Loftus-Cheek & Ross Barkley would have done a decent job covering for our other midfielders”

ᴀʟʟʏ : “Rueben Loftus Cheek has shown the world today why Saul Niguez was not a necessary signing”

Efo filey : “Loftus cheek was 10/10 today. I thought we lost this guy but wow. I love what I saw today. Up Chels “

NiiNiiFC-BlueLionsTV: “I got clowned for still keeping faith in Loftus Cheek How can I give up on a player that ain’t given up himself? People don’t see it? When you play Ruben in his best position, facing the goal, in midfield, this is the player you get”

Pys: “Ruben Loftus Cheek at Chelsea is a fascinating story, whenever it looks like he’s done, he does something to change the outlook on his career, and that performance tonight was reminiscent of him a few years ago, what a performance.”
