Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has revealed that he felt frustrated as he missed the team’s 3-0 win over Newcastle.
Mount was a hat-trick hero in Chelsea’s 7-0 win over Norwich, but he missed another opportunity to add to his goal tally this season.
Mount fell ill before the game and didn’t even make the matchday squad. The 22-year-old however revealed after the game the illness wasn’t COVID.
He tweeted after the match: “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!”
