The England midfielder is facing a lengthy absence which will force him to miss the Europa League final, this summer's Nations League finals and the start of next season 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.

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.

This means Loftus-Cheek will miss the Europa League final, this summer’s Nations League finals, and the start of next season.

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

Loftus-Cheek suffered the injury just after the hour mark, despite only being introduced as a half-time substitute.

Sarri made six changes at half-time, among them bringing on Loftus-Cheek in place of Mateo Kovacic.

Barkley made it 3-0 for the visitors just after the hour, with New England managing to hold off Chelsea for the remainder of the match.
