Gareth Southgate struck by yet ANOTHER England injury concern ahead of World Cup

Posted by

Gareth Southgate has been given yet another injury concern with the World Cup on the horizon.

Southgate is enduring somewhat of an injury crisis ahead of the competition, with right-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold, Reece James and Kyle Walker all currently injured.

Thankfully, if there is any position that England have a plethora of quality in, it’s on the right side of defence, so Southgate will be able to find a suitable deputy.

However, England are less blessed with options in other areas of the field – which will make Mason Mount’s apparent injury issue all the more concerning.

As is reported by the Daily Mail, Mount is set to have a scan on a thigh injury to determine the extent of the damage he suffered during Chelsea’s win over AC Milan.

The report notes that there is a possibility that Mount could be fit enough to face Aston Villa this weekend, but there can be no guarantees offered on that front.

If Southgate had a choice, he’d surely put a pin in the football now to ensure that no more of his key England players picked up injuries before the World Cup.
