Reece James and Mason Mount expected to miss the rest of the season.
Chelsea defender Reece James will be out for the remainder of the season with a hamstring injury whereas Mason Mount will undergo an operation due to his pelvic problem in recent months.
Frank Lampard who has been brought in earlier this month to replace Graham Potter until the end of this campaign confirmed that both Academy graduates are shut down for the season.
“Reece James is unavailable, probably for the season. Mason Mount is the same. Potential for the last game of the season but probably not. [Kai] still struggling a little bit with his knee, won’t be available for tomorrow but the good news is he should be training at the end of the week.
“[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 […] we’ve been trying [but] we’ve got to the stage now where he’ll have a minor surgery. Probably a four-week recovery and we know where that gets us to.”
They will now join Kai Havertz, Kalidou Koulibaly and Armando Broja in the treatment room.
