Ruben Loftus-Cheek dazzles as Chelsea beat Aston Villa on penalties

Chelsea advance to fourth round of Carabao Cup on penalties

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea had to rely on a 4-3 penalty shootout win against Dean Smith’s Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge tonight after the Blues failed to turn their dominant performance into a win in normal time , as both sides fought for a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes.

Next up for Chelsea is another fourth round home encounter in the competition when they host Ralph Hasenhüttl’s Southampton, who also needed penalties to beat Sheffield United at Bramall Lane last night after a 2-2 draw.

Timo Werner found his way onto the score sheet nine minutes after the restart before Villa tied through Cameron Archer, 19, ten minutes later.

Loftus-Cheek turn back time on a bright screen

On a night when Cobham product Trevoh Chalobah won much applause for his 90-minute performance at the Bridge, England international midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek turned the clock back in a fantastic display in the heart of Chelsea’s midfield.

Deployed as the midfield anchor in unusual use, Loftus-Cheek was at the center of all phases of Chelsea’s game on both sides of the ball in a performance that included a pass completion rate of 88%, a success rate of 100% dribble, 8/11 ground duels were won and 3 chances were created including 1 big chance.

For Loftus-Cheek, a player who showed himself very outwardly this summer when many expected the Lewisham native to follow Tammy Abraham to the Eternal City in a move to AS Roma, his period display may well have given Tuchel something in what to think. on after Saúl Ñíguez did not start brilliantly in his season loan from Atlético de Madrid.

The former Fulham (2020-21) and Crystal Palace (2017-18) assignee has every chance to rethink his coaches, given Chelsea’s lack of options in the center of the park like N’Golo Kanté, Jorginho and Mateo Kovačić are the only long-term midfield options at the club.
