Chelsea made a mistake in loaning Ruben Loftus-Cheek out to Crystal Palace, according to Willian.

Loftus-Cheek joined Palace on loan in the summer, and has impressed despite the south London club’s slow start to the season.

He was rewarded with his first England call-up during the latest international break, and started both games against Germany and Brazil.

The midfielder proves that the loan route can lead somewhere, despite Chelsea’s oft-criticised system with regards to younger players.

But former teammate Willian has questioned why he was loaned out in the first place.

“He’s a very good player. He is strong, he has quality. He has a great future,” said Willian.

“I don’t know why he is at Crystal Palace now. I don’t know why. He has to come back.”
