Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has challenged Ruben Loftus-Cheek to show more fight as he holds the view that the player is not playing up to expectation.

Loftus-Cheek has seen only three games this season with all coming from the bench which makes it an abysmal for a talented and versatile midfielder like him.

Hasselbaink stated that the kind of player Loftus-Cheek is, is a direct opposite of what he has been showcasing on the pitch.

According to the legend, Loftus-Cheek was in the same situation with Ross Barkley but it’s a different story for the English player who has bounced back and learnt a lot.

He argued that Loftus-Cheek must make use of Barkley as a case study to ensure he turns the situation around with his career.

Meanwhile, Barkley has grown to become an important player in the Chelsea team, winning the heart of manager Maurizio Sarri with his impact either as a starter or coming in from the bench.

Barkley saved the West London side from an embarrassing defeat to Manchester United at the Stamford Bridge in the Premier League clash.

There is no doubt that the player is one of the reasons why the Blues have remained unbeaten in all competitions so far this season.
