Mason Mount injury update before Crystal Palace
Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is a major injury doubt for Saturday’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace.
Mount has started every league match for Chelsea this season.
He’s returned four goals and two assists in 11 games.
However, Mount may miss his first league game of the season against the Eagles following an injury on Tuesday night.
Against Ajax, Mount exited the game on the hour mark with an ankle injury. He was replaced by Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Mount appeared to roll his ankle after a tackle from Donny van de Beek.
After the match, Frank Lampard spoke about Mount’s injury. The Chelsea boss said:
They’ve strapped his ankle and hopefully it’s relatively minor but it’s one for the morning.
Chelsea 4 – Ajax 4
One of the games of the season so far.
Chelsea rallied from 4-1 down to draw 4-4 with Ajax in the Champions League.
A Tammy Abraham own goal put Ajax ahead, before Jorginho scored from the penalty spot after 5 minutes.
Goals from Quincy Promes, a Kepa Arrizabalaga own goal and another from Donny van de Beek put Ajax 4-1 up in the 55th-minute.
Cesar Azpilicueta scored Chelsea’s second, before the match turned with two red cards to Ajax’s two centre-halves in 10 seconds.
Both Daley Blind and Joel Veltman were dismissed for second yellow cards.

Blind Justice. 🙈 . Before receiving his second yellow card and ultimately a red card, Ajax’s Daley #Blind was brought down by Christian #Pulisic, was it a foul? . It was the first of two red cards in ten seconds for Ajax. . . . #CHEARS #Ajax #UCL #ChampionsLeague #footballtime
Against 9 men, Chelsea levelled through Jorginho and Reece James.
And, in dramatic fashion, VAR chalked off a fifth Chelsea goal after the ball hit Tammy Abraham’s hand in the build-up.
Dusan Tadic fumes about ‘triple punishment’ vs Chelsea
After the match, Ajax playmaker Dusan Tadic fumed about how the officials handled the match against Chelsea.
Tadic argued that Ajax had suffered a triple injustice at Stamford Bridge.
The Serb complained that Italian referee Gianluca Rocchi “stole everything from us”.
Tadic argued that Blind and Veltman’s second yellow cards were both unfair, and that Chelsea’s penalty was another injustice.
