Chelsea have confirmed that midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has ruptured his Achilles and will undergo surgery on Thursday evening.

The 23-year-old suffered the injury in Chelsea’s US post-season friendly against New England Revolution on Wednesday night, a fixture that has been much criticised, given the Blues still have a Europa League final against Arsenal to come.

The injury has also ruled Loftus-Cheek out of the squad for England’s Uefa Nations League campaign next month, which was announced on Thursday afternoon.



England boss Gareth Southgate confirmed that both Loftus-Cheek and Blues teammate Callum Hudson-Odoi, who picked up a similar injury last month would have been part of his plans.
