Same age. But game minutes separates the two. Although Loftus-Cheek's future is often hyped by many fans, in reality, he isn't getting the game time he deserves. Winks, on the other hand, is well-utilised under Mauricio Pochettino.
So it all boils down to one question: Is Loftus-Cheek future in doubt if he indeed chooses to stay put at Chelsea? Let us know! ☝️🤯

We all know that Ruben has immense talent. He is one of the best hopes that we've got for an academy player finally breaking into the first team. I personally think he is talented enough to make it at any club in the top 6. But I am not going to sugarcoat the fact that his odds of making it at Chelsea are not very high, and it has nothing to do with him. It's the situation at the club. We are currently blessed with three immensely talented attacking midfielders in Ruben, Barkley and Kovacic.
With Mason Mount coming back next season with a great season in his bag, Ruben's position at the club depends a lot on the Kovacic situation. If we do make his deal permanent, it's over for Ruben at the LCM spot.
However, if he can adapt to playing as a B2B player, which he did play for the academy, he might even break into the team. So to sum it up, Ruben should not go out on loan in January and has to take every opportunity Sarri gives him and try to overtake Barkley in the pecking order. But if he doesn't manage to do it, and Kovacic signs a new deal, as much as it pains me to say it, Ruben should leave permanently for the sake of his own career. He's got immense talent and will definitely turn out to be a great player, but sadly it may not be at Chelsea.
