‘Definitely’: Journalist claims 23-year-old Chelsea star now totally fit for the League Cup final

Published

on


Chelsea’s Mason Mount is reportedly “fully fit” going into this weekend’s showdown against Liverpool.

Reliable football journalist Matt Law has shared the news that the 23-year-old Chelsea star is available for the League Cup final on Sunday.
“Mason Mount is definitely fully fit for that game I’m told,” Law confirmed on the London Is Blue Podcast.

Thomas Tuchel’s Blues will face off against rivals Liverpool at Wembley Stadium in the Carabao Cup final.

For Mount, he may get the opportunity to line up in yet another final for boyhood club Chelsea.

The attacking midfielder picked up an ankle injury in the Club World Cup final victory against Palmeiras earlier in February, so he was completely absent for a Premier League game against Crystal Palace.

Thankfully, he was back on the bench during this week’s Champions League tie. He was an unused substitute during the victory in the first leg of the last-16 European contest.

Tuchel has supposedly been given a considerable boost now that the England international is “fully fit” to face Liverpool.


Mount likely to start for Chelsea
If fully fit, it won’t be a surprise to see Mount in Chelsea’s starting line-up this weekend.

His energy and work rate is likely to be crucial against a Liverpool opponent that will try to play with a high intensity.

Also, he’s been one of the most consistent attackers in the squad during recent months.

He’s scored seven goals and made eight assists in 34 games across all competitions so far this season.

Buyer, price revealed as Abramovich insists to sell Chelsea [Russian-Ukrainian war]

Published

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has made an offer to Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss to sell the club for more than £2 billion.

Due to apparent links to President Vladimir Putin, the 55-year-old Russian businessman is in the limelight.

During his broadcast on Thursday, US President Joe Biden promised that the West will confiscate everything belonging to Russian oligarchs, even their residences.

Abramovich has strongly denied any links to the Russian President, but calls for his sanction keeps getting louder.

Wyss, who is reported to have a personal net worth of $5.8billion, says it is the Russian who is trying to engineer an auction, not the other way around.

Speaking to Swiss newspaper, Blick, the 85-year-old said: “Abramovich is one of Putin’s closest advisers and friends. Like all other oligarchs, he is also in a state of panic.

“Abramovich is trying to sell all his properties in England. He also wants to get rid of Chelsea quickly. I and three other people received an offer on Tuesday to buy Chelsea from Abramovich.”

Wyss, however, said that the Russian billionaire businessman has placed the price for the club so high, adding that he has to wait to see what happens in the next four or five days.

“You know Chelsea owe him £2billion? But Chelsea has no money, which means that whoever buys Chelsea has to compensate Abramovich,” he added.

Trevoh Chalobah’s 15-word Chelsea response to Jamie Carragher on shocking Naby Keita challenge

Published

on


Trevoh Chalobah was left baffled after Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita somehow escaped punishment for a shocking tackle in Chelsea’s Carabao Cup defeat at Wembley on Sunday.

The Blues managed to hold the Reds for 120 minutes with the game ending goalless despite each side finding the net – the linesman’s flag intervening on a number of occasions.

In the end, it took a Kepa Arrizabalaga penalty miss for Jurgen Klopp’s side to secure the trophy.

There was a hugely contentious moment throughout the match though with Reds’ midfielder Naby Keita catching Chalobah with an extremely high challenge.

Neither the referee nor VAR thought the tackle was just cause for a sending off, a decision that left Chalobah baffled after receiving stitches post-match.

Taking to Twitter, the 22-year-old said: “Had to get stitches because of this. Referee is right there I don’t get it??”

Intriguingly, the Guinean midfielder wasn’t actually meant to be on the pitch at all before the match with Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara originally named in Jurgen Klopp ’s starting line-up.

However, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich man picked up an injury in the warm-up so was thus replaced.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher was also shocked at the challenge and suggested in the post-match coverage that Keita could have seen red.

Speaking on Sky Sports, he said: “When it initially happened, I thought the two of them had gone for it and completely missed the ball, that’s why I thought the referee let the game go on.

“The longer you look at it, it’s not a great challenge is it? Obviously slow motion always looks worse but as I said it doesn’t look great.”

Chalobah will certainly be hoping to make a quick recovery from the challenge, with the Blues next in action on Wednesday evening as they face Luton Town in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Chelsea goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga has spoken for the first time since he blazed over a crucial penalty in their 11-10 shoot-out loss to Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final.

The 27-year-old says he is “disappointed” but will “keep working”.

“To fall and rise. Disappointed after big effort during the tournament. We keep working.

“Thanks @ChelseaFC family for your support,” Kepa tweeted.
