Ruben Loftus-Cheek has been hyped up as the jewel in Chelsea’s crown, and to be honest – he has done very little to warrant that hype.
His exposure in the first team has been limited at best, but when he has been given a chance he has hardly set the world alight.
Players like Marcus Rashford, who have made their Premier League debuts with similar levels of hype, have come in and made an immediate impact – but Loftus-Cheek hasn’t.
Under Conte, he has largely disappeared from the first team fold entirely – and that is a testament to how little the Italian trusts him.
Hopefully this suggestion is wrong – but thus far, Loftus-Cheek has done very little to suggest that it is.
