Boston – The friendly game played by Chelsea in the United States left an unpleasant news. Ruben Loftus-Cheek sustained an injury.
Chelsea underwent a friendly match against the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium, Boston, Thursday (05/16/2019) morning WIB. This competition was held to raise funds for an anti-Semitic campaign project.
In a match that Chelsea won 3-0, Loftus-Cheek only came in as second substitute. But he was then eliminated in the 69th minute due to a problem with his left ankle.
Chelsea fans are increasingly worried because Loftus-Cheek leaves the stadium with crutches. The left leg of the 23-year-old midfielder is also equipped with a protector.
The injury of Loftus-Cheek became bad news for Chelsea, who will participate in the final of the Europa League. The Blues will beat Arsenal's top match at the Olympic Stadium, Baku, on 29 May.
Loftus-Cheek is doubtful to play in the Europa League final. If Loftus-Cheek is completely absent, the stock of the Chelsea midfielder will become thinner.
N & # 39; Golo Kante sustained a hamstring injury and could not necessarily play against Arsenal. Maurizio Sarri will only have three suitable midfielders, namely Ross Barkley, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.
