“Absolute baller” – These Chelsea fans hail another Loftus-Cheek masterclass

Chelsea have the lead against Brentford, although it’s a slim one.

The Blues scored just before half time through Ben Chilwell, although the game as a whole has been very balanced.

Thomas Tuchel’s team still lack a bit of attacking fluency, but one man who has been at the heart of everything good – Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

It looked like he’d barely have a sniff before the season started, but now he’s becoming something of a key player.

He’s picking up starts in all competitions, and the new 352 formation creates a perfect space for him in the lineup.

When players like Mason Mount are fit and firing again it will make using him more difficult, but for now he’s doing everything right to keep his place.

On social media they went wild for him, with one user Tweeting that he was an “absolute baller”.

We whole heartedly agree.
