The latest on Mason Mount’s availability for Chelsea vs Juventus

Mount to miss clash with Man City

Table-topping Chelsea are set to clash with Premier League holders Manchester City at Stamford Bridge in tomorrow’s lunch-time kick off, but will be without Cobham product Mason Mount.

The England international picked up a minor injury in the Blues’ 5-4 penalty shootout win at home against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup two nights ago, and the key attacking midfielder is sure to be unavailable.

Mount is the only absentee from Thomas Tuchel’s squad as they look to take away a valuable win in an early season fixture featuring two of the Premier League’s top sides. Both are expected to be in the thick of the race for Premier League honors as Tuchel confirmed the upcoming encounter as a ‘six-pointer’ with huge implications so early in the 2021-22 campaign.

Mount to return for Juventus

When more details were provided on the status of the England man, Tuchel made mention of Mount’s disappointment surrounding his injury.

He fought through the minor knock while playing a role in Chelsea edging Dean Smith’s Villans at the Bridge, in a typical performance since breaking into the first-team set up full time under Frank Lampard.

Thankfully for the Blues faithful, Mount will be fit and available when Chelsea jet-set off to Piedmont to square off with Serie A giants Juventus at the Allianz Stadium on Wednesday night.

Tuchel’s men started their Champions League group stage campaign on the front foot against Russian Premier League side Zenit St. Petersburg in a 1-0 win, and Mount’s inclusion in the squad will be a huge boost against a very tricky opponent.
