Chelsea have some serious talent out on loan this season, and thankfully there are a few of them getting essential first team experience in the Premier League.
Yes we are still talking about Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek in this sense, but unfortunately his progress has been dragged way back after suffering a long-term achilles injury.
Which players could be leaving Chelsea this month? Find out here!
When he did return to Chelsea he just didn’t show the same confidence levels that he had before, and it was pretty clear that a loan move was needed to help him develop once again.
This seems to be working so far, with the England international enjoying a pretty good season on loan at Fulham under former Chelsea midfielder Scott Parker, and he is really starting to show the signs of the player he once was.
Chelsea fans are willing him to get back to his best, and Parker believes that he is.
As reported by Football London, the Fulham boss said:
“I thought he did very well against QPR.
“Ruben’s been out for some time – this is probably the only consistent run of games he’s had over the last 18 months. We’re certainly seeing big improvements in that. He came on against Everton, got a goal, and again at the weekend he showed his quality in moments.
“He’s probably getting to know us a little more and what’s expected of him. I certainly still see lots and lots of levels from Ruben – this is a technically gifted beyond belief player. I see him getting better and better with each game.
“Goals, assists, grabbing games by the scruff of the neck – these are all elements of Ruben’s game that he can do. There’s only a handful of players you can probably say that about, so it just shows you the capabilities he has.”
