'Monster', 'Immense' - West Ham fans awestruck by January target Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Back in the January transfer window, West Ham were mentioned as one of the clubs hoping to sign Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan.

According to a report by The Sun in December, West Ham wanted Loftus-Cheek on loan with a view to a permanent move.

The England international would have been the ideal box-to-box midfielder for Manuel Pellegrini but Chelsea kept him.

And last night, Loftus-Cheek turned in a stunning performance against West Ham. The elegant midfielder bossed the game from the middle of the park.

Loftus-Cheek caused West Ham all sorts of problems during the 69 minutes he was on the pitch. He even got the better of Declan Rice on a number of occasions.

The 23-year-old completed 42 passes with a completion rate of over 80 per cent. Two of those were key passes and one was an assist for Eden Hazard’s wonderful solo goal.

Loftus-Cheek also completed five dribbles and had two shots of his own as he caused West Ham numerous problems (all stats via Who Scored).

Here are some tweets from West Ham fans discussing Loftus-Cheek’s impressive performance last night.
