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.

Solskjaer confirms attacker comeback


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Jesse Lingard has returned from a hamstring problem ahead of the Europa League clash against Partizan Belgrade.

The England international sustained the injury during the closing stages of the 0-0 draw against AZ Alkmaar this month and he has since been absent for the meetings against Newcastle United and Liverpool.

Speaking ahead of the Partizan game, Solskjaer has confirmed that the United graduate is back in contention for the first-team duties but he has yet to decide on the attacker’s playing time against the Serbian opponents.

“It’s fantastic to have him back fit. He’s been so lively and bubbly in training. I don’t know how much game time we’ll give him but he looks like he needs to catch up on lost time,” he told MUTV.

Manchester United have failed to win any of their previous 11 matches away from home and Solskjaer will be hoping that the Red Devils can put the unwanted record to bed against Partizan.

Lampard delivers injury update on two players


Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has provided an update on Ross Barkley and Cesar Azpilicueta ahead of the Champions League clash against Ajax.

In a report covered by Football.London, Lampard said that Barkley ‘turned his ankle’ during the Magpies game and stated that the England international would be assessed ahead of the midweek clash.

Meanwhile, Azpilicueta appeared to be struggling with a foot injury towards the end of the Magpies encounter but Lampard feels the defender has not suffered any injury of concern.

Chelsea have won their last five games on the bounce under Lampard and they are currently occupying the fourth spot in the Premier League standings with 17 points on the board.

James suffers minor ankle concern


Chelsea defender Reece James has reportedly withdrawn from the England Under-21 squad after suffering a minor recurrence of the ankle problem picked up during the summer.

The teenager returned from a lengthy ankle injury last month to make his Blues debut against Grimsby Town in the League Cup and he managed to impress with a goal and an assist.

According to Goal.com, James has sustained an ankle concern in training with the Young Lions and he has been sent back to the Blues’ Cobham base for further treatment.

However, the setback does not appear serious and he could return to regular training ahead of the Blues’ Premier League clash against Newcastle United next weekend.

James has been touted by the fans as the future right-back of the club but manager Frank Lampard has so far resisted the prospect of starting him ahead of club-captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

Chelsea are presently behind fourth-placed Leicester City on goal difference. They have the opportunity to win their fifth game on the bounce across all competitions when Newcastle visit the Bridge.

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.

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.

Solskjaer drops injury update ahead of Arsenal game


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that the club won’t be able to bank upon three first-team players ahead of the Premier League clash against Arsenal.

Speaking to MUTV, Solskjaer has confirmed that both Diogo Dalot and Angel Gomes have suffered knocks over the past week and they are unlikely to feature against the Gunners on Monday night.

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.

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.
