Chelsea midfielder and Crystal Palace loanee Ruben Loftus-Cheek has posted on his official Twitter account ahead of his parent club’s huge Champions League clash against Barcelona at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, and Blues fans have been quick to respond.
Can it be 19:45 already! 🔥

The 22-year-old joined the Eagles on a season-long loan deal from the Premier League holders last summer, and he made 17 appearances for them in all competitions before suffering an ankle injury at the end of December that could now keep him out for the rest of the season.
The setback clearly hasn’t stopped the England international looking forward to the visit of Barcelona to west London on Tuesday though, and he is clearly excitedto see his team come up against Lione Messi and Co.
Chelsea supporters took to social media to reply to their young star’s tweet, and while one said “come home Ruben”, another said “you should be there instead of Bakayoko”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Could of done with you my friend 💙. This would of been the perfect game for you.
