Former Chelsea defender Gary Chivers has revealed that he can’t wait to see Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek back to the Chelsea team.
Pulisic has been out injured since New Year’s Day and hasn’t featured for the Blues ever since, while Loftus-Cheek hasn’t featured for the Blues this season, since suffering an injury back in May.
Chivas believes that the duo will add enough attacking impetus to the Chelsea team when they return.
“I am excited to see Pulisic back,” he told Goal. “With everyone fit, it is a hard job to get in the starting eleven. Loftus-Cheek has been so unfortunate with injuries. It has really stopped his career progressing at a faster pace really.
“When he has come in and played he has been outstanding but then he gets a niggle and misses a few months. This one was a big injury of course. His career is hurtling forwards then it stops again. He is clever on the ball, quick feet and he is as strong as an ox at holding it up.
“He gives the midfield and defence support by not giving it away. You just want him to have four or five months clear of injuries so his career can progress rapidly again.
“When they are all fit like that it provides a great headache for Lampard to have. All the players fit will all want to play and play for the shirt. He has got a hard decision to make when that first game comes.
“I think Frank will be trying to get all the trophies it will be all out for the FA Cup but the most important thing is the top four spot to get in the Champions League. They have got every chance of doing that.”
