Loftus-Cheek posts six-word message after returning to Chelsea training, some Blues fans react

Chelsea supporters on social media took very kindly to Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s recent upload to his Instagram.

Loftus-Cheek posted a picture of himself in pre-season training, with the caption: ‘Fighting is a way of life.’

The midfielder has certainly been battling against the elements to break back into Chelsea’s first team.

His loan move to Fulham last term didn’t quite work out how all parties would have envisaged.

Yet, he did manage to get some valuable minutes into his legs after struggling so for long with injuries.

He still has some contests to overcome before being inducted into Thomas Tuchel’s squad.

But for now, Chelsea fans will just be pleased to see him out on the Cobham pitch once again.

Here’s how they reacted to Loftus-Cheek’s Instagram on Twitter:    

This next month could easily be make or break for Loftus-Cheek at Chelsea.

Tuchel can finally see his talents in the flesh, having missed out whilst he was away with Fulham.

Spots in midfield are already well competed, especially now the likes of Ross Barkley and Conor Gallagher have returned.

But with Billy Gilmour joining Norwich City, a space within the senior group has certainly opened up.

There’s no doubt Loftus-Cheek has the ability to be part of the team.

Pat Nevin agreed, however, the former Blues winger admitted to the Chelsea Chronicle he was unsure the England international would remain at Stamford Bridge next season.
