Loftus-Cheek feeling less pressurised at Crystal Palace

Loftus-Cheek feeling less pressurised at Crystal Palace

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has complained this season about having a small squad; that's inspite of the likes of Loftus-Cheek being allowed to leave on loan.

Gareth Southgate says he does not expect Ruben Loftus-Cheek's back injury to be a problem after the midfielder was substituted in the first half of England's 0-0 draw with Brazil.

The 21-year-old has been a bright light for the Eagles during their dark start to the season, benefitting from regular game time that he was never going to get at Stamford Bridge.

It is understood that if the player is ruled out of Saturday's Premier League clash at home to Everton, his absence will not be for more than one game.

More, importantly it shows that the English Premier League have plenty of good players waiting in the ranks for their chance.

"It was tough, mentally, at Chelsea not getting the game time, but I had to be really patient and have the mentality to still train right and do all the right things".

"He played some first-team football here, but he earned his stripes as well as made his mistakes playing with Borussia Monchengladbach". He's now playing for Crystal Palace where he's given a much better role than the one he would have got at Chelsea.

"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.

"I don't know why he is at Crystal Palace now".

"I've had no contact", he added when asked of his relationship with Conte.

"You can't win really, but I personally feel that it would have helped Ruben to have been loaned out a year earlier".

And now the question is, should Loftus-Cheek play for Chelsea in the next season or should look for another loan move? Yes, I imagine they probably saw the threat.
