Mason Mount reveals why he missed Newcastle win

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has confirmed he missed the 3-0 victory over Newcastle on Saturday due to illness and revealed it is not Covid-19 related.

One of the Blues’ regular starters, Mount has been impressive recently and scored a hat trick in the 7-0 demolition of Norwich last week. There was no talk of him missing out at the weekend during the buildup to the clash at St James’ Park.

After full time, Mount tweeted: “Gutted to have missed the game but what a performance from the lads to get the win!

“Woke up and didn’t feel 100% (non COVID related) but will hopefully be fully recovered over the next couple of days. Up the CHELS!”

Thomas Tuchel added: “He should have started but he got ill overnight and so we sent him home to London so that we can take care of him better and that he can recover better.”
