Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has ruptured his Achilles tendon and will have surgery on Thursday night.

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



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.

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

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