Chelsea will face Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday, and it’s the Blues only chance of winning a trophy this season.

For Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, he has never won the FA Cup, having been on loan at Crystal Palace when we last tasted success in the competition, in 2018 under Antonio Conte.

Loftus-Cheek joined Chelsea at the age of seven, and the academy product has grown through the ranks to play for the first team.

Loftus-Cheek played a pivotal role as Chelsea won the Europa League last season, and he’d be keen to add an FA Cup medal to his collection.

Loftus-Cheek said: “When I was at Palace I saw myself as a Palace player, part of that team, so I wasn’t jealous of what the Chelsea team achieved that year. But now I’m back at Chelsea, I’m a Chelsea player and I want to win titles with Chelsea.

“There’s no added motivation because the team won the FA Cup when I was away. Not at all.”
