Mount doubtful for Juventus clash

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Mason Mount remains doubtful for the Champions League clash against Juventus.

The England international sustained a minor injury against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup and subsequently missed the Manchester City game.

Tuchel has now revealed that he has no idea over the player's fitness, and a late decision will be made over the midfielder's involvement.

He told Chelseafc.com: "I absolutely don't know, we have to see. In the end it will be a matter of hours as to whether he makes it or not."

The Blues suffered a disappointing 1-0 Premier League defeat to the Cityzens on Saturday where they were poor attacking wise.

They failed to muster a single shot on target. In the end, they were lucky to lose by just one goal after key saves from Edouard Mendy.

Tuchel will expect a strong performance from his side against the Bianconeri on the road. They face the Serie A giants in Turin on Wednesday.
