Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is almost ready to play again for the Blues after a long injury problem, MySportDab reports.
The England international has not played since he suffered a shocking achilles injury before last season’s Europa League Final against Arsenal.
However, Chelsea fans are now delighted after a footage of Loftus-Cheek was posted on his social media, as he ontinues training alone, increasing the intensity and almost fully back again.
In the clip, Loftus-Cheek can be seen going past a selection of cones before getting the ball and then scored into a small post, testing his accuracy and finishing power.
Blues boss Frank Lampard had insisted after their win against Aston Villa that Loftus-Cheek was far from close to returning to full training.
‘He has had some setbacks over the past few months; he has been free of setbacks for sometime now, but he’s not yet fully ready as we had want,’ Lampard said.
‘There’s nothing more worse for Ruben than being injured. But at this moment he is not close to full fitness.’
But the clip online will give fans something to cheer about and everyone would hope the 23-year-old can make a full return to football in the new year 2020.
Chelsea are in a crucial testing period under Coach Frank Lampard, having lost four out of their last five Premier League matches.
The Blues play against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham up next in a crucial game for Lampard to turn things around and a loss would see Spurs go above Chelsea in the race for top four spots this season.
