Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League against Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be part of the matchday squad.

With N’Golo Kante out injured, having Loftus-Cheek in the squad is a welcome development.

Loftus-Cheek hasn’t featured at all this season following his Achilles injury last May but could come off the bench for the game against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Lampard said: “Ruben is in the squad. He’s not fit to start, but great to have him in the squad.”

Loftus-Cheek’s return to the team after being out since May will be a huge boost to Chelsea after just one Premier League win this year.
