Carabao Cup final: Chelsea Suffer injury blow ahead of Liverpool clash
Chelsea midfielder, Mason Mount has emerged as an injury doubt for the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool next week. Mount suffered an ankle issue during the early stages of the Club World Cup final victory over Palmeiras last weekend. The England international was replaced after just half an hour. Mount, who has scored seven goals and laid on eight assists in a season, is now set for at least two weeks on the sidelines. This means he will miss the Blues’ trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday and their return to the Champions League when Lille visit Stamford Bridge next week for their last-16 clash. Thomas Tuchel’s side then take on Liverpool at Wembley on Sunday, February 27 in the Carabao Cup final. It will be a shot at a second trophy this month for Chelsea, although Mount is unlikely to feature.
