Chelsea fans rage at goal-shy club as Loftus-Cheek nets screamer for new club



FORMER Chelsea star Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored his first competitive goal for AC Milan in spectacular style on Wednesday.

Loftus-Cheek, 27, left Stamford Bridge to join the Italian giants in a £15million transfer in June.

Christian Pulisic assisted the goal

He has since enjoyed a complete resurgence of form, appearing in each of the club’s opening six Serie A games.

The midfielder finally scored his first Milan goal this week – and he was assisted by a former Chelsea team-mate.

After making a run down the left, ex-Blue Christian Pulisic set the ball back to Loftus-Cheek who was positioned five yards outside of the penalty area.


The Chelsea academy graduate then fired a stunning shot into the bottom-left corner to give Milan a 3-1 lead against Cagliari.

Stefano Pioli’s side went on to win the match thanks to goals from Loftus-Cheek, Noah Okafor and England international Fikayo Tomori.

The outcome was bitter-sweet for Chelsea fans, with some claiming that Loftus-Cheek should NOT have been sold.

One person tweeted: “Loftus-Cheek first goal for AC Milan & it’s an absolute beauty. Couldn’t be happier for the guy.”

Another added: “He would’ve been so helpful and useful if we kept him. Glad he’s able to shine in Milan, his stock will rise like crazy this season.”


A third wrote: “I’ve watched the game. It’s a shame he is playing on right side of midfield three. He is better on left where he will find better angles to dribble. Either way he is showing Chelsea what they are missing.”


While a fourth joked: “I’m telling you Chelsea are the problem 😂.”

AC Milan currently sit second in the Serie A table, level on points with bitter rivals Inter Milan and only behind on goal difference.
