Loftus-Cheek picks up injury in England game

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

The midfielder, who joined Crystal Palace on a season-long loan deal in the summer, has been in fine form for the Eagles.

Here we take a closer look at Crystal Palace's loan signing of Ruben Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea.

"I felt like I needed to play a lot, so I came in and said I wanted to go away from Chelsea and play games".

Southgate admitted before the game at Wembley on Tuesday night that he would have to keep an eye on the 21-year-old after his efforts four days earlier and revealed after the match that Loftus-Cheek's body needs to adapt to playing more regularly.

His powerful running and technical skill provided Palace with their only moments of attacking inspiration during their seven-game goalless run to start the season, prior to Wilfried Zaha's return from injury.

Willian believes Ruben Loftus-Cheek has a bright future at Chelsea and has urged the England global to consider an immediate return to Stamford Bridge. "I should be in your first team", Redknapp told Sky Sports News. I don't know why.

"It is rather unusual that I have recently read that Tammy [Abraham] is being held back in his Chelsea career because he has been loaned out to Bristol City then Swansea, but that Ruben was held back because he wasn't loaned out enough", he continued.

Former Liverpool and Tottenham skipper Redknapp believes Loftus-Cheek should be motivated to prove to Chelsea that they made a big mistake selling the powerful midfielder. When I had a chance, and when you don't play, you really feel the difference of what matches give you; the match sharpness, the fitness, the strength. They are a massive club and I understand opportunities don't come to everyone or often.

"If however he continues to impress for England and is clearly the best of the bunch at Crystal Palace for the rest of the season, I am convinced he will get a chance".
