Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored twice as Chelsea smashed QPR 7-1 in a friendly at Stamford Bridge.

The midfielder has been out for more than a year after rupturing his Achilles tendon.

The injury came during a charity friendly at New England Revolution of the MLS at the end of last season.

Billy Gilmour also scored twice in the game, with Mason Mount, Willian and Olivier Giroud netting too as Frank Lampard’s side warmed up for the Premier League’s return.

N’Golo Kante started having made his comeback to training later than the majority of the squad because of safety fears amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Chelsea go to Aston Villa on Sunday as the top flight resumes after being halted by the pandemic in March.
