Mason Mount was forced off the field in extra time against Plymouth Argyle and went straight down the tunnel when he was substituted. Chelsea’s No 19 then missed the Blues’ first training session in the UAE on Sunday before he underwent tests ahead of the Semi-Final match.
Speaking after Saturday’s win, assistant Arno Michels hoped Mount’s injury was not serious. He said: “Hopefully not, we’ll see. He was injured in extra time with this shot on goal. Just because of that shot – it wasn’t a big deal in the game – just It wasn’t until he got the shot that he realized it. He quickly felt the pain and so we took him off the field.”
However, recently, in a latest post on Twitter, Mount wrote: “The CWC journey begins”, along with a photo of him happily practicing.
This message quickly reassured Chelsea fans and it was even assumed that Mount would start in the semi-final.
Currently, coach Thomas Tuchel is still unable to reunite with his students because he is in isolation due to being positive for Covid-19. In the most ideal case, Chelsea board hopes that he will be able to go to the UAE this weekend.
