SAD: Here is why £80,000 a week Chelsea player will not be playing against Javi Gracia’s Leeds.
Chelsea is looking to grab a win against Leeds United but it does not look that this will be working out as planned as £80,000 a week has been ruled out of the clash.
Potter has said that Chelsea and England international midfielder Mount has a problem in his lower abdomen area and will not be able to play against Leeds.
Potter said on Friday: “Mason’s had a problem with his lower abdomen area, the bone, so he’ll miss the game tomorrow. We hope it won’t be too long but tomorrow will be too soon.”
Chelsea are struggling at the moment.
The Blues are unable to score goals or win matches, and Leeds will fancy their chances of winning at Stamford Bridge or at least pick up a point.
Leeds are in real danger of getting relegated from the Premier League to the Championship at the end of the season.
However, the West Yorkshire club won against Southampton at Elland Road in the Premier League last weekend.
That will have given them huge confidence.
Mount is a very good and dynamic player, and although the 24-year-old £80,000-a-week (The Daily Mail) star has not been in the best of form this season, he is always a force to be reckoned with.
That the Englishman will not play at Stamford Bridge on Saturday will encourage Leeds and will enhance their chances of picking up all three points from the encounter.
