A truly all-round performance: Ruben comes out on top in our Champions League win

Thinking about it, are we sure that AC Milan played eleven versus eleven in the 2-1 win over PSG? Careful, though, because we are not alluding to the tireless San Siro crowd as 12th man, but last night's MVP from our first Champions League triumph this season. This is because Ruben Loftus-Cheek covered every blade of grass in the Rossoneri's win over the Parisians: in defence, in midfield, and in attack.

Containment, creativity, well-timed runs. The English midfielder won every one of his battles on the pitch against those who made the difference in the reverse fixture, and has also received the award for being the best player on the pitch, as voted for by Rossoneri fans on the AC Milan Official App. With over 50% of the vote, Ruben came ahead of our goalscorers on the night, Leão and Giroud.

Acting in three different roles - midfielder, playmaker, attacking midfielder - Loftus-Cheek starred in both sides of the game with a presence that goes beyond his physical attributes. In a match that stood out for its high intensity across the whole 90 minutes, the Rossoneri number 8 played the leading part, showing off his entire repertoire and qualities that led AC Milan to target him in the summer.

In Ruben's outstanding performance, he also carried out 15 successful passes, two crosses, two chances created, five ball recoveries and three fouls committed: an all-round performance on both sides of the pitch also from a statistical point of view. But the numbers don't provide a complete picture of Loftus-Cheek's superb night, as infinite on the pitch as his shirt number turned horizontally. Well done, Ruben!
