Chelsea have had to deal with very little frustration so far this season. Maurizio Sarri has come in and made an immediate impact in the Premier League, and though West Ham were able to hold Chelsea to a draw over the weekend, it’s fair to say that most fans will have likely taken 16 points from 6 games at the start of the season.
Now, though, attention has turned to the Carabao Cup, with Chelsea set to take on Liverpool on Wednesday evening. Though perhaps not a priority for the Blues, any opportunity to take one to their Merseyside-based rivals is one that Chelsea fans won’t want to pass up.
However, ahead of the game, Chelsea have suffered a blow. According to the Telegraph, Ruben Loftus-Cheek is set to miss the game through injury after also missing their game with West Ham over the weekend.
It’s undoubtedly a blow for Chelsea, given that Loftus-Cheek was in with a chance of featuring for the Blues – having yet to make much of an impact in the Premier League. Chelsea will now instead be forced to rely on Ross Barkley or Mateo Kovacic, both of whom have been regulars so far this term.
Though Loftus-Cheek is popular at Chelsea, it appears as though this latest injury has tipped many fans over the edge. In response to the news, some Chelsea have revealed their frustration – and some are even calling for him to be sold.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
We should’ve sold him last summer, still there’s a chance to make a good money in January

Lads overrated. Mount is twice the player he is.

Doesn't do himself any favours. I know he doesn't get injured on purpose but when chances do come his way he's got to take them.
