It came after misses from Aleksandar Mitrovic, who also blazed over against Sheffield United, and Ademola Lookman, whose failed panenka against West Ham drew ridicule. But Loftus-Cheek, who hit his first goal for the club against the Toffees, revealed he isn't the next in line, should the club win their fifth penalty of the campaign. He told YouTuber Manny in a FIFA 21 showdown as part of Amazon’s Black Friday Live: "I’m not on pens, you have to respect it! "In terms of goals for the season, because I’ve been out for so long, I’ve just been coming into this season to get a good run of games.
"From when I first got injured to my first competitive game I was out for 13 months!.
"Now I feel strong and no thoughts about my injury are coming into my head, I just need to kick on from now."
