    Chelsea thrashed QPR 7-1 in a friendly match on Sunday, with midfielders Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour each scoring twice.

    Further goals from Mason Mount, Willian and Olivier Giroud helped Frank Lampard’s side to an emphatic win at Stamford Bridge as preparations for the Premier League’s return continue.

    The Blues continued preparations for the Premier League’s return with an emphatic defeat of their London neighbours.

    N’Golo Kante started the match against the Championship side, the France star having only resumed team training this week.

    Chelsea’s win came after a 1-0 defeat of Reading at their Cobham training base in a previous behind-closed-doors friendly.

    Loftus-Cheek has not made a senior competitive appearance for Chelsea since last season due to a ruptured Achilles sustained last May.

    The Blues are due to resume their league campaign next Sunday against Aston Villa at Villa Park.

    The Scottish teenager himself has a clear idea of the player he wants to become in the years to come with Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets one player he has particularly looked up to.

    When I was real young I used to watch [Cristiano] Ronaldo and [Lionel] Messi, as everyone did, but when I started analysing my game more and seeing who I would progress and hope to be like, it was more like [Andres] Iniesta, Xavi, [Cesc] Fabregas, all them type of players,” Gilmour told Sky Sports in April.

    It was just something I loved watching, seeing how they pass the ball, receive the ball and everything was sharp.

    Busquets as well, when you watch Barcelona, you watch Busquets individually and everything happens around him. But when you watch Barcelona, you don’t really see Busquets.

    “But that’s the kind of player I’ve always looked up to and just wanted to be that kind of player to get on the ball and make things happen.” After facing Villa on Sunday, Chelsea are next set to face Manchester City on June 25 https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=171183307755010&id=110160770523931
