Chelsea fans take to Twitter to demand more starts for Loftus-Cheek

Chelsea is a funny club at the moment with all of the on and off-field issues they’re going through. The media is just about getting over the Kepa Arizzabalaga saga from the Carabao Cup final yet the problems are deeper rooted than that, and amongst it all, the Blues cannot work out why Ruben Loftus-Cheek continues to warm the bench.

Chelsea’s young central midfielder has shown on more than a handful of occasions just what he’s capable of, yet he’s consistently overlooked and ignored as a starter by Maurizio Sarri. The midfielder was again a substitute yesterday as he came off the bench to see out the final 12 minutes at Craven Cottage, and the Blues cannot work out what goes through Sarri’s head as to why he’s not utilising Loftus-Cheek.

Last season saw the English midfielder shine for Crystal Palace whilst on-loan before then grabbing himself a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the World Cup. The 23-years-old has energy and athleticism in abundance, and the fans would love to see him in their midfield as a starter, however, he’s still stuck on just one start in the league this season and has played more minutes in six Europa League outings than he has in his 13 appearances in the league.

The Blues would love to see Loftus-Cheek become a regular starter, although it’s hard to see that happening under the management of Sarri.
