Chelsea FC teenager Ruben Loftus-Cheek repaid the faith shown in him by manager Jose Mourinho to hand him his first start of the new season by putting in an impressive performance in the 4-0 win over Maccabi Tel-Aviv in the Champions League.
The England U21 international put in a complete display at the heard of the midfield. He showed neat touches on the ball, drew fouls with his strong running, and his passing was fairly accurate too. The youngster should probably have been awarded a penalty as well.
The performance was good enough for Loftus-Cheek to earn the praise of his manager.
