‘That’s Mad Fast..Super Excited’ ‘Miraculous’ Chelsea Fans On Twitter Delighted With Latest Injury Update

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek will return to first-team training in the next six weeks, according to the Sun. The midfielder has been out with an Achilles injury since May.

It was expected that the 23-year-old would be back fit at the turn of the year, but it looks as though he could be back earlier than scheduled. Fans on Twitter are delighted by the positive news:

Loftus-Cheek sustained the injury in a friendly against New England Revolution, with an initial assessment that he would be out for up to twelve months.

There were signs earlier in the summer that his rehabilitation was progressing well and this latest update suggests that the midfielder has made rapid progress.

After such a long time out, though, don’t expect Loftus-Cheek to be pulling on a Blues shirt any time soon. It could still be two to three months before he’s back in first-team action.
