Chelsea interim manager Frank Lampard breaks the injury news that Reece James will miss the remainder of the season and Mason Mount is also unlikely to play in the last seven games. The ace defender James has been ruled out following a hamstring diagnostic, while Mount has an issue with his pelvic ailment. The two have suffered difficulties during the season, and it appears unlikely that they will play again.
It is a major blow for the Blues, who are seeking to finish the season on a high following a difficult few months in terms of results. The team will attempt to get back on track against Brentford at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, but the double blow has been compounded by the news that Kai Havertz will also miss the game.
Injury woes continue for Reece James
James has battled injury issues for the previous few seasons, leaving the Blues grasping for answers when he is absent due to his importance to the squad. Back in January, the club recruited Malo Gusto from Lyon as a backup who would seek to push the England star. As part of the transaction, the young right-back was loaned back to the French club, which means he won’t be able to play until next season. The frequent absence of Reece James has impacted a lot on his career and also troubled Chelsea from the right flank. However, he is still one of the most talented English right-backs alongside Trent Alexander-Arnold. Read More: Tottenham Sacked Their Interim Manager after Embarrassing 1-6 Defeat
More Chelsea injury news on Mason Mount
Mount has also dealt with a slew of problems this season, including an ongoing pelvic condition. Another injury means that the club’s two-time player of the season, who has yet to make an appearance this season, will miss another game as speculation over his future grows.
Injury issues have remained a worry for the West London club, affecting their season. If they are to compete significantly again next year, it may be necessary to address this issue in depth or by behind-the-scenes improvements.
