Milan Lose Another Midfield Staple Because of an Injury

Ruben Loftus-Cheek won’t be available for the next two games, but his injury isn’t too severe, and he should easily recover during the upcoming international break. The Englishman subbed off in the first half of the Lazio game.

According to Sky, he has been diagnosed with a muscular distraction in his groin/adductor area. There was some concern about the nature of the injury. It happened unusually due to a sudden rotation of his torso.

Loftus-Cheek will miss the matches against Borussia Dortmund and Genoa and look to heal up during the pause. Milan will have a challenging schedule afterward, facing Juventus, PSG, and Napoli in short order.

The Rossoneri will be bare-bones in the midfield sans the former Chelsea star and Rade Krunic. Their only choices will be Yacine Adli, Tijjani Reijnders, Tommaso Pobega, and Yunus Musah.

According to the publication, the first one is likely to be the odd man out initially midweek since he started the last two matches. That has been the case also for the Dutchman, but it’s tough to keep him out of the formation given his form.

Our Take on Loftus-Cheek

Milan can breathe a sigh of relief as the early reports were a bit worrying, but it’s nothing more than a standard injury. While they’ll be thin in the next contests, the emergency will be short-lived thanks to the stoppage.
