(Video): Chelsea youth favourite steps up his recovery from serious injury

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is thought to be behind Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James in terms of his injury recovery.

Callum has had longer since his injury, and Reece’s problem was never as severe.

Now it looks like Ruben has overtaken the defender, who had to have surgery after a setback, while Ruben has now posted a video showing he’s back in the pool as he steps up his recovery.

If he’s in the pool now, it won’t be long before he’s back out on the fields. Next comes playing with the ball, and then he’s done. It’s all looking rosy for Ruben.

You can see him running in the clip below, here:
