Many Chelsea fans expected young midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek to start against Watford but were disappointed not to see him in the starting eleven or even on the bench.

Following Chelsea’s 4-3 win over Watford at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte revealed Loftus-Cheek missed the game because he is struggling with a back injury.

“He is struggling with his back,” Conte said.

“It could have been a good opportunity today. We have to take the best decision for him for the next season, the best decision for him.

“He is a good young player and through our academy.”
