Ruben-Loftus Cheek is having an impressive season and gradually asserts his place in the first team of Chelsea with impressive performances. In the second leg against Frankfurt, it was the midfielder who scored the opener for Maurizio Sarri’s army.
However, with the Italian coach wanting to keep Mateo Kovacic behind, perhaps he still not fully confident in the English player. And Cheek will have to try harder to gain the confidence of the team coach.
Besides Cheek, Chelsea has another English player, Ross Barkley. However, the hope of a time of English football is no longer his own, and it is difficult for him to compete in the official capacity of the Blues.
Loftus Cheek still struggles a lot if he wants to make sure of the Chelsea squad.
The most tragic of these is probably the case of Arsenal when in the semi-final second leg, coach Unai Emery used 13/14 foreign players. The only indigenous name in the squad was Ainsley-Maitland Niles.
Despite the main kick, it is clear that the 22-year-old is only a substitute for Emery’s situation in the context of long-term injury Hector Bellerin. When the Spanish defender returns and regains the best of the ball, it will be difficult for Niles to get into the “Gunners” main squad. And then, Arsenal will become the team “of the British but not of the British”.
Amidst the glorification, the victory in drunken men is still anxious. English teams can be successful, but their players are still facing numerous difficulties. To bring their team to the top, to bring real football home, there will be a long way to go with countless things to do for the British ahead.
