Chelsea boss reveals how Mason Mount reacted to being dropped against Manchester City

Thomas Tuchel admits Mason Mount is ‘not happy’ about being dropped for Chelsea’s clash with runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City, but feels the midfielder’s reaction is ‘absolutely normal’ and ‘will not last long’.

Mount had started Chelsea’s previous eight matches in the English top flight and eyebrows were raised as Tuchel instead opted for Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic in support of Romelu Lukaku at the Etihad.

Timo Werner and Callum Hudson-Odoi were introduced just moments before Kevin De Bruyne’s stunning strike – which turned out to be the winner – and Mount was left on the bench until the 81st minute when he was thrown on in place of Marcos Alonso.
