Frank Lampard provides fresh update on Mason Mounts injury

Mount requires late fitness test for Palace clash – Lampard


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has revealed that Mason Mount has recovered from his ankle problem but a late fitness test will determine his involvement against Crystal Palace.

The England international sustained the injury during the midweek Champions League clash against Ajax where the Blues registered a 4-4 draw from 4-1 down.

Mount was initially predicted to miss the weekend’s London derby against Palace but Lampard has now confirmed that Mount will feature, provided he is able to pass the fitness test.

“With Mason, he’s in the squad. We’re giving him another 24 hours and we’ll make a call on that one in the morning,” he was quoted as saying by the club’s official website.

Mount has been ever-present for the Blues in the Premier League and Champions League this season and has contributed four goals and an assist in all competitions.

His potential absence against the Eagles could offer Callum Hudson-Odoi with a starting role. Christian Pulisic may shift to the number 10 position for Hudson-Odoi to feature on the left wing.

Lingard out of Magpies clash


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Jesse Lingard won’t take any part against Newcastle United after picking up a hamstring injury.

The England international came on for the final 15 minutes of the Europa League clash against AZ Alkmaar last night but he could not finish the game after pulling up with a hamstring concern in stoppage time.

In the post-match press conference, Solskjaer confirmed that Lingard has indeed suffered an injury setback and he won’t be available until after the international break.

“He tweaked his hamstring so he didn’t feel like he could risk it, but hopefully it’s not too bad. Probably not Newcastle, but he should be ready for Liverpool,” he was quoted as saying by the club’s official website.

Aside from Lingard, Solskjaer provided an update on Paul Pogba by stating that the French midfielder is unlikely to return from an ankle problem for the trip to St James’ Park.

Manchester United are currently languishing in the 10th spot in the league table and have accumulated just nine points. They will face the Magpies on Sunday in the search for their first away win since March.

Manchester United suffer fresh injury blow for Arsenal clash

Wan-Bissaka out of Arsenal game?


Manchester United have received an unexpected injury blow with Aaron Wan-Bissaka unlikely to participate in tonight’s Premier League clash against Arsenal.

The England international has been ever-present for the Red Devils this season and he has missed just one game in the Europa League against Astana, where he was rested.

However, in the lead up to the Gunners clash, he seems to have suffered a mystery injury and that is expected to see him sidelined for the Premier League encounter, The Mirror reports.

Aside from Wan-Bissaka, Diogo Dalot is also unavailable for the game with a knock and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may go with either Axel Tuanzebe or Ashley Young on the right side of the defence.

Meanwhile, there are some positives on the injury front with Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford tipped to make the matchday squad after passing late fitness tests.

United are presently four points behind the final Champions League spot and Solskjaer will be hoping for a positive result against the Gunners, who are one of their top four rivals.

Chelsea receive fresh update on Mason Mounts ankle injury

Mount could feature against Liverpool


Chelsea have received a positive update on midfielder Mason Mount following the ankle injury sustained during the Champions League clash against Valencia.

The England international picked up the damage following a strong tackle from Francis Coquelin in midweek and it was initially indicated that he may have sustained a long-term setback.

However, according to The Sun, that does not appear the case with scans showing that the 20-year-old has not damaged any ligaments through the challenge from the former Arsenal man.

It is added that the Blues graduate remains a touch and go for the forthcoming Premier League clash against Liverpool and a late fitness test may determine his involvement.

Mount has been a revelation for the Blues since making his debut at the start of the campaign and he has already contributed three goals in the Premier League, where he has featured in the number 10 role.

Aside from Mount, Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham have been handed with the opportunity to impress under Lampard and the duo have likewise delivered with standout performances.

Manchester United to make fresh raid on Leicester City?

Maddison wanted by United?


Manchester United are reportedly planning to make a raid for James Maddison from Leicester City after having previously pursued Harry Maguire from the east Midlands outfit.

The Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has favoured the addition of young and hungry players to his squad and the recent transfer window saw the recruitment of Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Maguire.

Each of those players have made an instant impact with the Mancunian giants and according to The Times, Maddison has now been earmarked as the next transfer target for Solskjaer.

It is added that the Red Devils could bid in upwards of £60m for the former Norwich City graduate, though it is unclear whether the Foxes will consider a mid-season sale of their playmaker.

Maddison has broken into Gareth Southgate‘s England squad on a couple of occasions but he has yet to earn an international cap with the Three Lions to date. The 22-year-old has contributed a couple of assists for the Foxes this term.

Chelsea receive double injury boost


Chelsea have received a fresh injury boost with young duo Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James tipped to return to first-team action following the ongoing international break.

Hudson-Odoi suffered a serious Achilles injury during the penultimate month of the previous campaign but he has made a swift recovery to participate with the Blues in regular training.

James, meanwhile, has been a short-term absentee following the ankle problem sustained on England Under-20 duty but he appears close to making his Blues debut after similarly returning to first-team training.

According to injury analyst Ben Dinnery, both players are set to make their injury comebacks following the international break and they could take the playing field by the end of the month.

Hudson-Odoi’s absence has not hampered the team drastically with the emergence of Mason Mount while Tammy Abraham has been able to show his goalscoring exploits.

On the other hand, James has been regarded as the future choice for the right-back spot but he could be handed with an early debut, considering the poor form of Cesar Azpilicueta in the role this season.
