In his press conference today, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has given fresh update on our academy graduate Mason Mount who was forced off in the closing stages of Chelsea’s 3-2 win over Norwich on Saturday with a calf problem.

Mount scored a brace last time out, and Lampard was confident Mount will be fit in time for Chelsea’s next game against Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge next Saturday.

“Mason took a knock to his calf, so that is better than a strain, obviously,” Lampard said after the Norwich clash.

“So hopefully in a couple of days it will settle down, so hopefully that is good news. We will assess it.”

Speaking in his press conference today, the Blues boss has assured that Mount is fit and ready for Sheffield clash.

Asked if Mount would be fit, Lampard replied: “Yeah, he is fine. It was just a knock.”

Lampard used Mount to good effect playing in the Championship last season while as Derby County boss, and the 20-year-old is now a key part of Lampard’s team at Chelsea, and Lampard remains confident in the youngster.

“I am confident in his character and desire, hunger. Everyone must keep their feet on the ground. It is only the start for him,” said Lampard.
