Chelsea fans want Ruben Loftus-Cheek back after latest Crystal Palace display

Chelsea loanee Ruben Loftus-Cheek, rated at £7.2m by Transfermarkt, shone and scored in Crystal Palace’s 5-0 thrashing against Leicester City at Selhurst Park on Saturday, and Blues fans were quick to say that they want him back at Stamford Bridge.

The midfielder was sent to the south London outfit on a season-long loan deal last summer having found first-team minutes hard to come by under Antonio Conte, and with his chances being further harmed by the signings of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater, whom the Stamford Bridge faithful on Twitter say they want to leave the club, before Ross Barkley also arrived during the January transfer window.

The 22-year-old has certainly been in impressive form for Palace this term despite suffering injury issues, and he has scored two goals and provided a further three assists in 22 Premier League appearances for them.

Chelsea supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on Loftus-Cheek’s latest display, and while one said “RLC must come back to Chelsea next season and play”, another said “Loftus-Cheek should be starting for us over Baka”.
