Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has been handed a major boost ahead of the business end of the season thanks to the return of Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Loftus-Cheek has been out of action since May after he ruptured the achilles tendon in his left leg playing in a post-season friendly for Chelsea against New England Revolution. 

But on Monday night, the England international played a full 90 minutes for the first time in ten months as he played a crucial role in Chelsea's Under 23s 1-0 victory over Everton.
