Ruben Loftus-Cheek, right, last just over an hour against Brighton (Richard Heathcote/PA) Frank Lampard has vowed to give Ruben Loftus-Cheek time to reach top form after an injury-ravaged 16 months.

England midfielder Loftus-Cheek suffered a nasty torn Achilles in May 2019, missing Chelsea’s Europa League final victory over Arsenal in Baku.

The Blues have invested more than £200million in a summer rebuild, but Stamford Bridge boss Lampard is determined to see Loftus-Cheek hit back to his best.

Both creative talents will be doubtful to face Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, with Lampard happy to hand Loftus-Cheek more opportunities moving forward.

Loftus-Cheek featured in a more advanced number 10 role in Monday’s 3-1 win at Brighton but continues to receive backing from Lampard despite clearly searching for genuine rhythm.

“It’s a position that Ruben can play for us, we’ve got injuries with Ziyech out and Pulisic out as well,” said Lampard, of deploying Loftus-Cheek in a more advanced role.

Kurt Zouma turned home James’ corner via a hefty deflection to kill the contest, with the west Londoners happy to kick-start the new campaign.
