Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored Crystal Palace’s third goal of the game against Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.

Loftus-Cheek’s loan stint at Selhurst Park has been incredibly encouraging. His good performances have seen him be handed his international debut, and he could be heading to the World Cup with England later this year.

A nasty ankle injury threatened to derail the youngster’s breakout campaign, but he has refused to let it be the nail in the coffin.

The 22-year-old scored his second Premier League goal of the season against 2015/16 champions Leicester City on Saturday. Roy Hodgson’s men secured three points which should be enough to keep them in the division.

Loftus-Cheek kept his cool in front of goal, dropped his shoulder to round the goalkeeper, and passed the ball into the empty net. It really was a superb goal from our academy product. We hope to see him doing this in a Chelsea shirt next season.
