Graham Potter rates Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s World Cup chances.
The midfielder has consistently featured in all of 11 Premier League fixtures for Chelsea this season.
He has struggled with injuries over the past few seasons but now has established himself as a crucial member in Potter’s squad.
Graham Potter believes the midfielder’s impressive form could earn him a place in the England World Cup squad.
‘Ruben has really impressed me, on and off the pitch,’ Potter said.
‘He is a humble guy who wants to learn and improve. He’s clearly benefitted from more game-time, but the way he has trained is really, really good when he hasn’t played. So that has allowed him to build his fitness up.
‘Clearly, he needs a good fitness level to carry that big body of his around the pitch, but his quality is there. He is fantastic on the ball, great physicality, great athlete.
‘I think he is putting himself in a situation where he will be one of the players Gareth [Southgate] will be looking at as an outsider for the squad. But that is Gareth’s decision.’
