‘Fire back in his belly’ – Ian Wright hails Loftus-Cheek after Southampton display

‘Fire back in his belly’ - Ian Wright hails Loftus-Cheek after Southampton display

Ian Wright heaped praise on Ruben Loftus-Cheek after he played a starring role in Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Southampton.

Wright was amazed with his display, and said on Match of the Day: “What was good about Ruben Loftus-Cheek is that after the injury he had, going to Fulham, I didn’t think we’d ever see him go back to this kind of form.

“The display today was magnificent. People say about Ruben Loftus-Cheek about his energy and it looked like he was playing in himself.

“But today, in his own box, in midfield, everything. One of the things he’s going to have to do to stay in this Chelsea team, especially as someone who played in a pivot as a [midfield] two, is score more goals.

“The power, the skill, he’s got everything. People say he hasn’t got the energy, look at him now, this is scary.

“Looking at a Loftus-Cheek who looks to me like he’s got the fire in his belly back. He’s dangerous.”

Loftus-Cheek will hope he did enough to start Chelsea’s next match against Brentford but Tuchel has a number of options to choose from.
