Finally the real reason behind Mason Mount not playing against Leicester City revealed; Here is why.
Saying Potter does not want to see him play could be far fetched from the truth but what if it actually is the truth of the matter?
Potter looks like he is finally starting to trust a regular set of players and know what they give him now as he builds his team. Things were always going to take some time, but it was clear that big improvements were needed, and now we have seen just that.
Being told that Mason Mount was left out of yesterday's squad. Player described as 'fully fit.'

Jacobs said: “Mason Mount remains a crucial player for Chelsea with the hope he can rediscover his form and goals from last season. There was a lot of speculation as to why he was left out against Leicester and my understanding is there was really nothing sinister or contract-related about it.
“Firstly, there is a difference between a fit player and a match-sharp one. Mount is recovering from an abdominal injury and Potter had said in the build up he “probably needs a little more time”. I am not sure why fans were so surprised by his Leicester omission as a result.
“With such a big squad, Potter has no need to rush players back, nor would his medical staff allow it.”
