Chelsea fans want Loftus-Cheek back after another impressive Crystal Palace display

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek once again impressed for loan side Crystal Palace in their 2-1 win against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday, and Blues fans want to see the 22-year-old in their team next term.

The England international joined the Eagles on a season-long loan deal last summer having found regular opportunities hard to come by under Antonio Conte, and he has since made 24 appearances in all competitions – it would have been more had he not suffered an ankle injury.

The midfielder set up James McCarthur for the south London club’s first goal against the Pottters following a deft touch and brilliant pass, while he had two shots at goal himself.

Chelsea supporters, who are also growing in confidence that their club will sign Manchester United’s Anthony Martial, were quick to have their say on Loftus-Cheek’s latest display via social media, and while one said “bring back Loftus-Cheek”, another said “Loftus-Cheek is ready for Chelsea”.
