• Chelsea midfielder craves first League start of season
• Loftus-Cheek is trying to improve his all-round game
Ruben Loftus-Cheek will make a decision over his short-term future at Chelsea later this month as he waits to discover if the positive impact he has made in recent weeks earns him a first Premier League start of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The England midfielder has scored five goals in his last six club appearances, including the team’s second against Fulham on Sunday to secure a timely derby success, to draw praise from the head coach, Maurizio Sarri. The 22-year-old has been a regular in the Europa League and Carabao Cup selections this season, regaining his place in the national squad for last month’s fixtures as a result, but craves greater involvement in the top flight.
