Reports from the Sun suggest that Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be on the sidelines for at least two weeks after suffering a foot injury.

The England international sustained the injury while playing for the Three Lions against Switzerland in a friendly game.

The player who has been itching for a regular place in Chelsea’s lineup will miss the Europa League game against PAOK Salonika, a game he would surely have started.

Loftus-Cheek may also be unavailable for the crunch Carabao Cup tie against Liverpool, another game he would have definitely featured in. These are not good times for the England man.

This is a major blow as the player would have been looking forward to impressing Sarri in these games and make a case for himself.

This is coming after teammate N’golo Kante had expressed the belief that the England international is ready to feature for the Blues.
