Chelsea have won the 2014/15 Premier League title with three matches to spare, meaning that we're likely to see some significant squad rotation for the final three matches. For one player in particular the early title win has created a big opportunity, as academy product Ruben Loftus-Cheek is set to make his first start for the Blues this afternoon against Liverpool:

Jose Mourinho has been talking up Loftus-Cheek quite a bit this season, and has been telling fans they could expect the youngster to play a significant role next season. Because of that, I'd expect his start against Liverpool to be the first of several we'll see over the next few weeks, including the final two matches of the Premier League season, and the post-season excursion to Asia.

Congratulations, Ruben, we're all excited to see what you can do.
