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.
