Mason Mount, one of Chelsea’s top goal scorers for the current Premier league season, picked up an injury during their 0-1 loss to Velencia at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday in a further blow to manager Frank Lampard.
Chelsea has a 48-hour-wait to discover the extent of the injury that forced Mason Mount off early in their Champions League defeat by Valencia.
Manager Frank Lampard has confirmed that 20-year-old Mount suffered an ankle injury in a challenge with Francis Coquelin.
The midfielder has started all five of Chelsea’s Premier League games and made his England debut earlier this month.
“We have to assess it over the next 24-48 hours to see the scale of the injury,” said Lampard.
“We don’t know how bad it is. It is an ankle injury and it is a shame. He’s been playing so well and he started well tonight.”
