Mount optimistic of return against Liverpool despite Lampard warning

Chelsea will have to wait until Thursday at the earliest to know if Mason Mount will be available for their game against Liverpool.

The England midfielder limped off in the first half of Chelsea’s defeat to Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday, after being caught by a late challenge from Francis Coquelin.

However, the Metro report that Mount told journalists that he hopes to be available for Chelsea’s return to Premier League action against Liverpool on Sunday, whereas manager Frank Lampard was more hesitant.

“He has got an ankle injury which we don’t know how bad it is,” said Lampard after the game.

 

“We are going to have to assess it in the next 24-48 hours to see the scale of the injury, to see how the injury is.

“It’s too soon to say, obviously it was a shame because he was playing so well and started well and we had to make the change early.”
