Chelsea’s young midfielder Mason Mount’s Champions League debut lasted just nine minutes before he was limped off with an ankle injury. The 20-year-old midfielder suffered the injury after a poor challenge from Valencia’s Francis Coquelin in the Blues’ 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

The midfielder was in great form as he had started all of Chelsea’s Premier League games and was also been rewarded with his first England cap earlier this month as well.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is hopeful over Mason Mount’s ankle injury during Tuesday’s 1-0 loss to Valencia at Stamford Bridge.

He told BT Sport: “It did affect the game and we know how well he is playing. He looked sharp.

“It is an ankle injury and hopefully not too bad. It needs to be assessed over the next few days.”

“We don’t know how bad it is. It is an ankle injury and it is a shame. He’s been playing so well and he started well tonight.”

Mount has scored three goals from five Premier League starts, appearing as a substitute in Chelsea’s Super Cup defeat by Liverpool.

Mount, who has established himself in the first team under Lampard since his loan spell with Derby last season, will be assessed over the next few days to determine the extent of the injury.
