Mason Mount’s status for Chelsea’s clash with Aston Villa confirmed

The Blues have been afforded a timely boost on the personnel front


An update on the wellbeing of Chelsea star Mason Mount has been forthcoming online late on Saturday evening.

For those not aware, midfielder Mount had sparked major concern at Cobham this past Thursday.

This came upon the England international limping out of training with a thigh concern, ahead of a round of medical scans.

Mount, in turn, was labelled as an immediate doubt to feature this weekend, when Chelsea turn attentions back towards matters on the domestic front in a Premier League meeting with Aston Villa.

Two key members of Graham Potter’s squad have of course already been ruled out long-term this week, with both N’Golo Kante and Reece James facing up to extended spells on the sidelines.

In turn, word of positive news circulating regarding Mount’s concern will give rise to a collective sigh of relief across west London.

As per Simon Johnson of Standard Sport, the 23-year-old today underwent a series of tests in his thigh, which returned negative results.

Mount is therefore expected to be ‘in contention’ to feature at Villa Park on Sunday, potentially from the off.
