Loftus-Cheek's Resurgence Could Affect 2 Chelsea Players This Season.

Chelsea's midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek did put in an outstanding performance yesterday against Aston Villa in the Carabao cup.

The blues secured a 5-4 penalty shoot out win against Dean Smith's team, to book a quarter finals clash with Southampton.

One player who impressed for Thomas Tuchel's team on the night was Ruben Loftus-Cheek, as he was handed his first start of the new season.

The 25 year old star showed flashes of the player who once impressed in blue colours, before his terrible ACL injury that brought a setback to his Chelsea career.

Against Villa, Loftus-Cheek looked unplayable and earned applause from both his manager Tuchel, and the Chelsea fans.

Should he keep up with such performance in subsequent games, it could definitely earn him regular game time, which could affect some Chelsea players, and i will thus be having a look at two of them in this article.

Saul Niguez

The Spanish midfielder is yet to find his feet at Chelsea since he joined on loan from Atletico Madrid in the summer.

Judging by Loftus-Cheek's recent display against Villa, he could overtake the Spaniard in the pecking order of Chelsea midfielders.

Mateo Kovacic

Another player who could be affected by Loftus-Cheek's performance is Croatian midfielder Kovacic.

The two players somewhat have a similarity in their style of play, but Loftus-Cheek offers more in terms of finishing and goals, which could be a major source of concern for Kovacic.

Do you see Loftus-Cheek displacing Saul & Kovacic soon?
