Huge blow for Chelsea as midfield ace, Ruben Loftus-Cheek was reported to have sustained an injury during his international duty.

While the former. Crystal Palace loanee was still aiming at stamping his shirt in Sarri’s first XI, having every need to avoid what could place him on the sidelines, the situation of his playing time would now be aggravated by the injury sustained.

However, Chelsea’s manager is still close to updating the fans about the issue presently but it appears that he would remain on the sidelines for at least two weeks.

It is a traditional method for the Blues to give chances to only matured and experienced players, sending young talents on loan while waiting for them to improve in other clubs before returning to Stamford Bridge.

This method, however, has seen Chelsea enjoyed having players like Thibaut Courtois and Christensen; but on a business perspective, Chelsea have lost credible players like Kelvin De Bruyne, Mo Salah and Romelu Lukaku in recent years.

Chelsea will have to take drastic measures of keeping young talents to avoid wanting to buy them in the future at an abused price.

The Blues still have players like Ethan Ampadu, Kennedy, Hudson Odoi including others as those who can carry Chelsea emblem and newly oriented possessive footballing style.

Sarri will, however, be cautious of how he would manage Ruben irrespective of the injury sustained even though Crystal Palace is still knocking on the door for his signature.
