“His frame doesn’t look like a frame of a footballer; he is tall and gangly, but he’s so sharp in his mind,” Loftus-Cheek told reporters. “He knows what he wants to do next, his technique – he looks like he has so much time on the ball.
“He takes two touches or one touch and he makes it look so easy. If a fast and strong player had that as well, you could dominate.”
