Chelsea star Ruben Loftus-Cheek has demanded for more playing time especially in the English Premier League after delivering a solid performance with a hat-trick in their 3-1 win against BATE.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek was handed an opportunity on Thursday night and he had made good use of it, scoring his first hat-trick in the Blues jersey. Now he wants to have more league appearances.

With N’Golo Kante and Jorginho already looking solid in the midfield, the only slot left per game has been rotated between Cesc Fabregas, Ross Barkley, Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Barkley has looked convincing with his good play and goal scoring form but with the latest show by Loftus-Cheek, manager Maurizio Sarri will be left with the headache of who to give the nod for the remaining slot in the middle.

Loftus-Cheek expressed his delight at winning the game for the West London team, noting that it is his first hat trick as in a while as he last did that when he was in the youth team.

He, therefore, called on the Italian boss, urging him to hand him a permanent role in the Premier League because he has shown he can handle it perfectly.
