The midfielder appeared to be in tears as he made his way off to be replaced by Eden Hazard after 43 minutes.
The extent of the injury which forced him to come off is so far unknown but any absence will be a huge blow to Maurizio Sarri’s side who have been struggling for form in recent weeks and face a number of crucial fixtures as they try to claim a top-four finish.

Here is how Twitter reacted to Loftus-Cheek’s injury.
Loftus-Cheek in tears. That’s how much Chelsea means to him. Don’t ever compare him to any other Chelsea youth. Elite mentality. Unlucky son, get well soon.
So sad to see Loftus Cheek go off in the first half. Tried to give his all despite having another injury. You could tell he was rushed back due to the amount of players we have injured right now…. #cfc
