Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek made his second Premier League start of the season as his resurgence under Thomas Tuchel continues.

The Chelsea academy graduate was one of Chelsea’s best players on the pitch in the hard-fought 1-0 victory over Brentford on Saturday evening.

Loftus-Cheek completed 5 dribbles against Brentford, the most by any player on the pitch. He also had the most touches of the ball (101), won the most fouls (5) and also won the most ground duels (12).

Loftus-Cheek was second highest when it came to passing the ball, completing 62 passes during the game.

Loftus-Cheek definitely earned the right to start the Champions League game against Malmo in midweek.
