The World Cup fever is on. As the defending champions are being knocked out from the group stage last night, the champions’ curse saga continues once again. First it was France, then Italy, then Spain and now the Germans who are knocked out from the group stage being the defending champions. On the other hand, the sides who are looking impressive are only Belgium and England. England have brought in a new set of players who are just dying to prove themselves. The urge is noticeable and Harry Kane is leading them in all means. England have proven why they are one of the contenders of this golden trophy. Just as it happened back in 1966, Real Madrid won the European Cup, Burnley qualified for Europe, Man City won the league and Chelsea finished at 5th, guess what,
England won the World. The scenario is same this time too, but can the British guys pull it off?

 

English midfield is versatile this time and the 22-years-old has shown some brilliant stuff out there. Ruben Loftus Cheek, who has been on loan to Crystal Palace last season. Cheek was brilliant for Palace last time in in the Premier League and the domestic competitions. This heroic performance earned him a first call-up to the England national team and now he is one of the those in Russia hoping to bring the World Cup home to England. Moreover, Cheek is a Chelsea guy and according to the source, the Blues have refused to sell him. His display of football have drawn compliments from the Pundits and fans and they believe the midfielder deserves more time at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea may hope for a long time future of this young talent who may bring them the eternal glory in Europe, after which are from the time Drogba and Lampard had left the club. The midfielder made his debut against Panama at the World Cup where England thrashed the debutants 6-1.

Loftus Cheek had two goals and four assists in his 29 appearances last season, which is quite impressive. He is strong in dribbling and finishing. Loftus-Cheek played a heroic and instrumental role in Palace which helped them to avoid relegation. It is expected that he will surely want regular football time next term. Though he has said he will decide his future after the World Cup. Chelsea is going under transformation this time as Antonio Conte would be no longer at Bridge next season. Maurizio Sarri is rumoured to replace the Italian manager and Cheek may find some valuable match times under him. However, the English Midfielder went through the valuable development under Palace boss Roy Hodgson. Now it depends on him, where he choose to go.

Chelsea finished at fifth last time in the Premier League and won’t be able to play in the Champions League this time. It is expected that they will now only focus to regain the Premier League. Moreover, Chelsea had a mixed kind of season last time, where they successfully won the FA cup and delivered some serious reasons to cherish for.
