Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is still getting to grips to his Achilles injury.

The 23-year-old was due to be named in Gareth Southgate's England squad on Thursday for next month's two-game Nations League tournament in Portugal.

Maurizio Sarri's pre-match worries appeared to become a reality during Chelsea's 3-0 friendly win over New England Revolution after Ruben Loftus-Cheek limped off with a suspected ankle injury.

Loftus-Cheek was just beginning to find his top form at Stamford Bridge and it's a nightmare if he faces a long spell on the sidelines.

Callum Hudson-Odoi suffered a torn Achilles in Chelsea's 2-2 Premier League draw with Burnley on April 22, and will also miss the start of next term. It is constantly moving.

"I don't really know where he [Sarri] stands. He will miss the UEFA Europa League final and England's campaign at the Nations League finals and will spend the summer undergoing rehabilitation in order to resume full training as soon as possible".

He had been on the pitch for only 20 minutes after being introduced as a half-time substitute.

"In particular he has really come on in the last few months and looked strong and playing with a lot of confidence and I am really disappointed for him in particular".

Now though, reports are suggesting that the World Cup victor might be fit in time to play against Arsenal in the Europa League final.

Johnson tweeted: "one bit of positive news for cfc is Kante looks increasingly likely to recover from a hamstring injury in time to face afc in the Europa League final".

"I think we're all excited with what he's going to bring to the table", Revolution forward Diego Fagundez said of Arena.
