Chelsea suffer triple injury blow ahead of Brentford clash

Frank Lampard has revealed that both Reece James and Mason Mount are expected to miss the rest of the season.

Mount has been struggling with a pelvic problem while James is again sidelined with a hamstring issue having endured a torrid time with injury this season.

“Reece James is unavailable, probably for the season,” Lampard said.

“Mason Mount is the same. Potential for the last game of the season but probably not. That’s obviously disappointing for us.

“It’s a blow for all of us because they’re big players. Reece had a hamstring he picked up in the Madrid game, he got through the game but we scanned it the following day.

“Mason has been carrying this pelvic injury for quite a while, it pre-dates myself being here. We’ve been trying and the medical staff have been trying but we’ve got to the stage now where he’ll have a minor surgery. Probably a four-week recovery and we’ll see where that gets us to.”

Meanwhile, Kai Havertz is also set to miss Chelsea’s clash with west London rivals Brentford because of a knee issue.

“Kai is still struggling a little bit with his knee,” Lampard said.

“He won’t be available for tomorrow but the good news is he should be training at the end of the week.”
