Ruben Loftus-Cheek: Chelsea midfielder ‘facing a year out injured’ after rupturing Achilles during friendly

Ruben Loftus-Cheek will reportedly miss up to a year of football after suffering a serious injury during Chelsea’s friendly with New England Revolution.

The Blues won 3-0 in the United States but Maurizio Sarrio was dealt huge blow when Loftus-Cheek went down injured, and was seen leaving the stadium on crutches and in a protective boot.

And, according to The Sun, the England midfielder faces a minimum six months on the sidelines, with a ruptured Achilles potentially keeping him out for a whole year.
