Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that he hopes Mason Mount’s ankle injury will only be a minor one.
The 20-year-old sustained an ankle injury during the second half against Ajax last night and left the pitch with Callum Hudson-Odoi coming on for him. In an exciting contest, Chelsea drew 4-4 against the Eredivisie champions at Stamford Bridge.
Following the match, Lampard said that Mount’s ankle has been strapped. Speaking to the club’s official website, the Chelsea manager said: “His ankle is strapped, we hope it’s relatively minor, but that’s one for the morning.”
Lampard will be hoping that Mount’s injury doesn’t rule him out for long as he’s become one of the Blues’ most important players this season.
There now seems a chance the midfielder might miss out Saturday’s match against Crystal Palace as well as England’s remaining Euro qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo.
However, he should be in decent condition to feature in Chelsea’s matches following the international break, with the Blues playing Manchester City on the 23rd before taking on Valencia four days later.
