Revealed: Whopping 92% of Chelsea fans want Loftus-Cheek to play more often

For someone whose only full Premier League season was interrupted by injury, it has been quite the summer for Ruben Loftus-Cheek so far at this World Cup.

The Chelsea starlet’s close relationship with England manager Gareth Southgate means that he has been trusted as a key creative asset as the Three Lions go in pursuit of an unlikely triumph in Russia.

He injected some much-needed urgency in the final nine minutes of the last-gasp 2-1 win over Tunisia in England’s opening game before Dele Alli’s injury handed him the opportunity to start against Panama.
