Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek returned to full training on Friday after eight months on the sidelines.

Loftus-Cheek suffered the injury during a friendly against New England Revolution in the United States in May, which caused him to miss the Europa League final and the first half of this season.

The 24 year old will be unavailable for selection for the FA Cup game against Hull City on Saturday despite returning to training on Friday. He is likely to be eased back into action slowly to avoid a setback.

Loftus-Cheek faces a race against time to prove his fitness to Gareth Southgate ahead of Euro 2020.
