£80,000 per week Chelsea midfielder is going to miss Real Madrid clash due to injury

£80,000 per week Chelsea midfielder is going to miss Real Madrid clash due to injury

The third consecutive match between Real Madrid and Chelsea will take place in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages next week.

The opening leg of the UCL quarterfinal between the European champions and the high-spending Premier League teams will take place at the Santiago Bernabeu on April 12, with the return leg taking place at Stamford Bridge the following week.

Mason Mount’s anticipated absence from the encounter against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu has caused Chelsea to suffer an injury setback.

The English international’s abdomen injury has reportedly relapsed, according to Simon Johnson of The Athletic.

Frank Lampard was recently reinstated as Chelsea’s interim manager until the end of the current campaign, taking over for Graham Potter.

When Lampard managed Chelsea in the past, Mount was a mainstay in his starting lineups. On the other hand, the Englishman had lost favor under Potter and was anticipated to leave the team this summer.

But Lampard’s return gave Mount fresh hope that he might contribute significantly for Chelsea.

The 24-year-old midfielder has not competed for the Blues since February because of an abdominal injury. In order to be ready for today’s game against Wolves, he had returned to the bench for Chelsea’s previous two matches against Aston Villa and Liverpool.

When Lampard unveiled the initial lineup of his second term, Mount’s name was, however, missing because of the recurrence of the injury.

Mount’s availability for Wednesday’s game against Real Madrid is now in question.

The England star hasn’t played a significant role this year, but he is a talented player, and his potential absence will help Real Madrid.
