Chelsea midfielder Loftus-Cheek: Lampard someone to aspire to

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek admits he models his game on club icon Frank Lampard.

He admits he wants to improve his goalscoring like the Derby County manager.

RLC said, "He was obviously the best at that. I studied him a lot in the Academy with my coaches, how he arrived in the box and his timing to get in the box and score goals.

"It was something I aspire to be like that as a midfielder who has the ability to score goals.

"I would like to be a player who can score a lot in a Premier League season. That's something I will look to improve on."
