Ruben Loftus-Cheek is Chelsea's next big hope of an academy graduate finally breaking into the first-team.

John Terry was the last Blues youngster to become a mainstay in the line-up after he broke into the side at the turn of the century.

The west London club have had a number of young talents come and go, but Jose Mourinho has afforded more opportunities to Loftus-Cheek than many youngsters could even hope for.

Having made his debut for the Blues in their Champions League victory over Sporting Lisbon last season, the midfielder has gone on to make eight appearances in all competitions. 

However, he was warned by Mourinho after Chelsea's post-season friendly with Sydney FC, and was, once again, reminded of what is expected of him following a poor display against Aston Villa. 

Loftus-Cheek was replaced at half-time and the Special One slammed the England youth international for his lack of defensive and tactical awareness.

The 19-year-old has not made an appearance for the Blues since their 2-0 win over the Villains and was back in action for the under-21s.

And it seems the Chelsea midfielder is just one step up from the level of youth football. 

Loftus-Cheek picks up the ball straight from kick-off and bursts past three Liverpool defenders before blasting the ball home. 


Having been given the chance to shine against Aston Villa, it seems Loftus-Cheek has fallen down the pecking order in central midfield.

It's obvious he has an unbelievable amount of talent but needs competitive game-time to nurture his ability. 

That may be hard to come by at Stamford Bridge.
