Chelsea fans buzz after Ruben Loftus-Cheek's superb goal against Fulham
Ruben Loftus-Cheek has had a tough start to the season after returning from England’s World Cup endeavours.
Injury set him back early on meaning he’s had to settle for appearances in the EFL Cup and Europa League.
But Maurizio Sarri’s easing him into the season seems to have paid dividends, as he providing an attack impetus to Chelsea’s midfield.
Loftus-Cheek scored a hat-trick against BATE Borisov just over a month ago, and scored a wonderful goal against West London rivals Fulham.
It’s his second goal in the league, and shows what he can bring to the Chelsea line-up that is missing with Mateo Kovacic.
Due to his history with Chelsea, Chelsea fans adore Loftus-Cheek.
But Loftus-Cheek has struggled for playing time at the Blues since coming though and spent last season at Crystal Palace.
However, Loftus-Cheek should get playing time at Stamford Bridge this season as they’re competing on four fronts.
So, here’s how Chelsea fans reacted to Loftus-Cheek’s goal against Fulham:
Ruben Loftus-Cheek has scored five goals in his last six games.

What a goal, those combinations Ruben can play, the link up, the goal threat and his ability to play in tight spaces.
Sarri has to loosen up a bit with all these defensive demands, that’s why Kantes there!
Offensively he’s phenomenal

Beautiful goal by Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Absolutely fantastic combination between him and Hazard.
That goal right there is a prime example of why RLC simply has to start over Kovacic. Kovacic, as good as he is, just doesn't offer a goal threat. Ruben is just so dangerous.

Ruben has to get more PL minutes. We know his defensive game needs work but he brings something to that attacking CM spot that nobody else in the squad has. If the midfield itself can be tweaked to provide a stronger platform, you can let him off the leash and reap the rewards.
