Latest Chelsea Injury News: Updates On Mount, Kante, Havertz And Christensen

Chelsea attacking midfielder Mason Mount seemed to suffer an injury in the second half of the 2-1 win against Leicester last night.

A clash of knees meant it looked like he could well be taken off, but he lasted the full 90 minutes. It remains to be seen whether the 22-year-old has suffered any lasting effects which could keep him out of upcoming matches.

N’Golo Kante did, though, have to be substituted in the first half yesterday evening, with manager Thomas Tuchel confirming that the Frenchman had been replaced as a preventative measure after feeling tightness in his hamstring.

The Blues boss says he is hopeful that he will play against Aston Villa at the weekend but the player has had a history of muscular injuries so he will need to be assessed closely ahead of the game.

Kai Havertz was missing from the matchday squad for the Foxes clash, but it is only believed to be a minor muscular strain so the German should be ready for Sunday.

Andreas Christensen remains a major doubt in terms of playing again this season. The Danish international has not been seen since sustaining a hamstring injury in the win against Manchester City, and his return date has slipped back after initial hopes he’d be fit for last night’s game.
