Ruben Loftus-Cheek was forced to leave the clash between AC Milan and Lazio last night after just 29 minutes on the pitch. By the looks of it, the Englishman will be back in action after the international break.
The former Chelsea man has been an important player for Stefano Pioli’s side at the start of this season and his injury is certainly a blow. Rade Krunic and Ismael Bennacer are already on the injury list and the midfield is thus a little thin at the moment.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the abdominal injury means Loftus-Cheek will miss the games against Borussia Dortmund and Genoa next week. Tests will be carried out tomorrow to determine the full extent of the injury.
Yunus Musah will likely replace Loftus-Cheek in both of these games and as a result, Yacine Adli could start yet again on Wednesday. It won’t be an easy game for Milan but they will need the three points after drawing the first game in the UCL.
