Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace resurgence continues down in South East London, and there’s a Chelsea man at the heart of it.
Palace are cruising to victory against Leicester, and while it’s Wilfried Zaha who’s terrorising defenders and getting the goals up front, the industry and driving runs of RLC in midfield are what’s providing a platform for the Ivorian.
Just check out some of the Tweets from those watching the game discussing the on loan midfielder’s performance, which included a goal and an assist.
That was Loftus Cheek

Loftus-Cheek has just booked his flight to Russia -unless Southgate is asleep. #CPFC

Loftus-Cheek also deserves a mention. Amazing half from the lad. 🔴🔵

My Boy Loftus Cheek also dropping a masterclass.

Palace absolutely bossing the midfield. Cabaye breaking up their counters, Loftus-Cheek (I’ll miss him!) steaming forward. First goal Arsenal-esque. What is happening

Loftus-Cheek better stay in the first team next season. He should be the top choice to pair up with Kante with Cesc getting old..

Loftus-Cheek has to be in England’s preliminary 30, not sold on him being in the final 23 yet

Loftus-Cheek the best player on the pitch this afternoon. What a talent. All hail the future of English football. #CPFC

Ruben Loftus-Cheek putting in a performance that says he should be on the plane to Russia. Gareth Southgate here to witness it. Classy player.
