Chelsea midfielder Loftus-Cheek: I want to be just like this legend

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek says he draws inspiration from Blues legend Frank Lampard.

Loftus-Cheek would like to play a similar role in the midfield, driving late into the box and getting his name on the scoresheet.

“Growing up in the youth team, the player I looked up to most was Frank Lampard," he said.

“He was in the same position and he was a goalscoring midfielder. I looked at his game and I tried to replicate how he scores his goals."
