Jamie Redknapp has warned Ruben Loftus-Cheek that he will not get in the Chelsea side under Maurizio Sarri.

Loftus-Cheek is in an outstanding young talent here at Stamford Bridge and is tipped to become one of the best English players of his generation, but he has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the last few weeks as there has been constant speculation that he could pack his bags in the January transfer window if he does not get the kind of game time he needs to develop.

Many have criticised Sarri for not playing Loftus-Cheek week in and week out, believing he has the ability now to a regular in the first team, and Loftus-Cheek has proved that fact right over the last few weeks after scoring a hat-trick in the Europa League and then scoring again against Burnley after smashed the minnows 4-0 last weekend.

However, Redknapp has warned Loftus-Cheek not to get too carried away by his game time over the last few weeks, claiming that the midfielder will fail to get a lot of game time throughout the rest of the season, telling Sky Sports: ‘I don’t think he gets in the team here.

‘Look who he’s up against: Willian, Hazard, Kante, Jorginho, Barkley. I just don’t see how he gets in this team. He’s a good player but I can’t see it.’

Will Loftus-Cheek get the game time he wants and deserves? Here is what we think on his Stamford Bridge future

Loftus-Cheek is a talent but why would Sarri drop Jorginho, Willian, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic or Ross Barkley to accommodate the young man when tthese guys have been performing so good this season?

Loftus-Cheek does need time yes, but only if he earns it and that takes time, especially in a team that is full of superstars.
