Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek will miss the Europa League final after undergoing surgery on his Achilles tendon.

The 23-year-old will now miss the Europa League final with Arsenal, as well as England's summer Nations League commitments.

With the Premier League season over and the Europa League final not until the end of the month, Chelsea were in America for a friendly to promote the club's Say No To Antisemitism campaign.



Speaking about Loftus-Cheek, who had a growing influence on Chelsea towards the end of the season, England boss Gareth Southgate said on Thursday: "I went to bed last night and Ruben's in the squad and playing brilliantly.

The club announced that the England international suffered the injury during the 3-0 friendly win over New England Revolution in Boston on Wednesday.

"He misses now a major European final and a brilliant opportunity for us."

Loftus-Cheek's injury mirrors the one suffered by club and international team-mate Callum Hudson-Odoi last month.
