This is why it was concerning to see a strong candidate for our player of the season Mason Mount get a whack yesterday and go down holding his back in pain.
Hearts were in mouths from Chelsea fans as he just about managed to pick himself back up and play. But it wasn’t long after that when Thomas Tuchel wisely removed him from the game to recover.
Luckily, it sounds like he got off without any lasting damage that could effect him for the game midweek, and as Tuchel explains, it was more precautionary and he doesn’t think Mount did any injuries.
“I hope Mason will be okay, I don’t think it was a big thing but we took him off so he can recover ahead of Real Madrid. It was my decision, there was not any doctor or physio who told me to take him off.”
