Shocking: Here's the main reason why Mount is out of Chelsea squad against Man City

Chelsea will be without Mason Mount for Saturday’s clash with Manchester City but goalkeeper Edouard Mendy will return between the sticks.

Thomas Tuchel revealed Mount has not shaken off a minor injury he picked up against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup in midweek.

‘It’s too soon,’ Tuchel said. ‘He’s made huge progress but it’s not enough to be ready for 12.30 tomorrow’

On whether that will alter Chelsea’s approach for the game, the manager added: ‘Yes and no, he’s very disappointed and I didn’t feel it during the match.

‘It happened in the second half and obviously, he played through the injury and finished the game.

‘He was even confident enough to take a penalty, an important penalty, in the shootout. So it was a bit of a surprise’

‘The steps for recovery he is doing right now, they’re huge’

‘Maybe it’s even possible that he could have played if the game was one day later

‘It’s a very minor injury but still, it’s a disappointment for him and also for us because he is a player we count on

‘But it is always the same – no matter what importance Mason has, no matter how much we rely on him, the task is to find solutions now without him and bring him back as soon as possible.’
