27 passes, 100% pass completion, 3 interceptions, 1 tackle, 1 block. Not sure what more people were expecting from a 19 year old on his début put in there to sit with Mikel.

Few people slagging him off already. Unbelievable.

And then they moan about lack of youth integration!

Roy Hodgson hopes Ross Barkley’s £15million move to Chelsea can boost Crystal Palace’s chances of signing loan star Ruben Loftus-Cheek permanently, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The England international has been a revelation during his loan spell from Stamford Bridge and the former England boss hopes the 22-year-old will make the move to Selhurst Park on a permanent basis.

"The way Ruben's been playing for us, he's a player we'd like to have at our club, there's no doubt about that," Hodgson said.

"But it’s far too early to ask me that question – I didn't know until this morning that Ross Barkley is possibly signing for Chelsea. Ruben's a player we like very much, we're very impressed with him, delighted with the way he's developed as a player during the time he's been here.

"I'm pretty sure that if he's ever available for sale, we would certainly be in there with our hand up as one of the potential buyers. But it could well be that Chelsea would like to have both Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in their team. I wouldn't mind both in my team, anyway."

Chelsea will rebuff any and all bids for midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek this month and in the summer, according to the London Evening Standard.

Ain't that bad. Only a month. 

If he goes back to the side straight after getting back fit we know that Palace rate him.

More than a  month mate. Looks like 2-3 months at the minimum.

You can't tell me that the likes of RLC and Van Ginkel could have been any worse this season than Bakayoko and Drinkwater.

If we had shown a bit of faith in using some of the players already on our books, we could have used last summer's transfer budget on, say, 3 top players rather than it being spread over half a dozen.

If we had midfielders that were both good enough and stayed fit this season it could have been so different. It seemed early on that Conte wanted to move the team towards a 3-5-2 formation. It worked perfectly against Atletico and would have given us a different option to use rather than become predictable and one dimensional. This just has not been possible this season when we've only really had Fabregas and Kante fit throughout the season.

I'd rate Pasalic above all of them and he probably still won't get a look in. Around 2 whole squad out on loan with no first team action in sight.
