Loftus-Cheek set for another important step towards first team return tonight » Chelsea News

Chelsea are hosting Manchester United in the Premier League this evening in what is a massive game for the race for the top four.

Frank Lampard’s side will look to take all three points with their fate remaining in their own hands, just!

Tottenham are a point behind them in 5th place, but Chelsea have a game in hand and simply must take advantage.

Elsewhere there is growing anticipation about the long awaited return to the first team for Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has been out for the long term with an achilles injury.

He features again tonight for the Chelsea under-23s against Arsenal in a game that will test his fitness before getting back into the senior squad.

Obviously a huge game at Stamford Bridge tonight, but also Ruben Loftus-Cheek is expected to take another step in his recovery tonight by playing for the U23s against Arsenal. @ArtdeRoche will be there for @Football_LDN and will be keeping an eye on the Chelsea midfielder. #cfc
