Ruben Loftus Cheek goal vs Watford: Eden Hazard gives perfect assist to put Chelsea 1-0 ahead in an intense top 4 race
Ruben Loftus Cheek has helped Chelsea fans breathe a sigh of relief, putting them 1-0 ahead on the day against Watford. In the top 4 race, Chelsea find themselves in a massive rut with Spurs, Arsenal and United and need this win in order to get some breathing space in the race for a Champions League spot.
Eden Hazard delivered a delicious ball into the box, with Ruben Loftus Cheek meeting the ball brilliantly with his head and putting the home side ahead.

Loftus Cheek came on for an injured Kante, who hobbled off the field due to an apparent hamstring injury, putting his participation for the Europa League game in doubt as well.
Fans have been crying out for Loftus Cheek to be included in the XI, and while Sarri has been a little reluctant all through the season, he has helped him get some game time in the last few weeks.
The young Chelsea star has also started a few games in the past month and if his performances are anything to go by, he is sure to be one of Chelsea’s biggest superstars in the years to come.
With that transfer ban hanging around the Chelsea management’s head, they would be desperate to keep hold of their young academy stars and Loftus Cheek is one such player.
Meanwhile, David Luiz has put Chelsea 2-0 ahead and that should ensure 3 very important points for them in this incredible top 4 race.
