Chelsea star suffers huge injury ahead of Europa final

EPL By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 16/05/2019

Chelsea star Ruben Loftus-Cheek suffers a huge injury ahead of their Europa League final against Arsenal.

Loftus-Cheek suffered a major injury blow during their friendly clash against the New England Revolution in the early hours of this morning.

The midfielder is a major doubt against Arsenal in the Europa League after Maurizio Sarri named a strong line up in the match raising awareness for antisemitism.

Loftus-Cheek was taken off just after an hour and was replaced with academy starlet Conor Gallagher coming on in his place.

ESPN FC correspondent Liam Twomey described the injury as one that would likely end his season: “I'd be very surprised if that isn't the end of Loftus-Cheek's season.

“The reason for this friendly is unimpeachable but the timing always left the possibility for something like this. Sarri was right to be worried."

Chelsea won the game 3-0, Ross Barkley scored a brace and Olivier Giroud scored one.
