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.”
