‘Sending Saul back to Atletico’: Fans in awe of Loftus-Cheek after Villa midfield masterclass
Ruben Loftus-Cheek put in a massive performance against Aston Villa in the League Cup on his first start in a year and eight days.
And Chelsea fans on Twitter are happy to see RLC back as they are impressed with his display against Dean Smith’s side.
Many think he is much better than Saul Niguez right now and should be ahead of the Spaniard in the pecking order.
