Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has lavished praise on the club’s midfield star Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The Chelsea star on loan at the club helped them stay afloat last term. After the worst possible start in the league’s history – losing all seven games, without a single goal –, Palace fought back to finish 11th on the log at the end of last season.

The Blues loanee helped the Eagles fight on and retain their top flight status. His performance earned him a call-up to the Three Lions by coach Gareth Southgate last November. The 22-year old had his World Cup debut in the England vs. Tunisia game last week.
