Chelsea started last week’s game against Aston Villa with four aged 21 or under in the side. One of them being Loftus-Cheek, who played in the “number 10” position for The Blues. “If the boss decides to put a few young players in it will be great for us and the academy”, the youngster points in an interview to Evening Standard.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek put up an impressive performance on Saturday in a 4-0 win over Aston Villa. He believes that the young players have a good chance to be given some game time as Chelsea don’t have much to play for this season. He also added, “The next manager coming in is watching us now, so you always want to do your best in every game.”
Loftus-Cheek has made it clear that he is looking forward to being awarded more playing time to impress the new Italian boss who will take over The Blues from Guus Hiddink soon after the EURO 2016.
It’s obvious that Conte will need to spend big in the summer transfer window to rebuild the Chelsea side, but he cannot ignore the assets which The Blues already possess in the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Bertrand Traore and Kenedy.
