Mason Mount Confirms He Does Not Have COVID-19 Following Newcastle Absence

Mason Mount, who missed Chelsea’s 3-0 win against Newcastle on Saturday, has stated that he does not have COVID-19.

Chelsea clinched their place at the top of the Premier League with a brace from Reece James and a penalty from Jorginho.

Taking to Twitter after the game, Mount confirmed that his illness is not COVID related.

He wrote: “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!”

Chelsea did not miss the midfielder too much, as the Blues broke down Newcastle and scored five goals despite a difficult first half.

Thomas Tuchel revealed that the midfielder was set to start against Newcastle but was forced to return to London due to illness.

He said: “He should have started but he got ill overnight and so we sent him home to London so that we can take care of him better and that he can recover better.”

Chelsea will be hoping to have Mount back as soon as possible as they look to keep their fine form going at the top of the Premier League table.
