Mason Mount World Cup chances rated as Graham Potter Chelsea verdict delivered

Chelsea attacking midfielder Mason Mount has his England place ahead of the World Cup in jeopardy according to a former player

Here are your latest Chelsea football.london headlines on Friday, September 23.

Mason Mount’s World Cup place at risk

Chelsea’s attacking midfielder has undergone an underwhelming start with the Blues to the 2022/23 campaign but has been called up once again to Gareth Southgate’s England side.

The 23-year-old will hope to get some minutes under his belts in the upcoming UEFA Nations League fixtures against Germany and Italy. Whether or not he makes the final squad for the World Cup remains up in the air alongside all his teammates who will need to fight for their places but Glen Johnson is currently worried for the Chelsea star.

He told Bettingodds.com: “Definitely. He needs to be scoring and creating goals because that’s what he’s good at. Mason was at the centre of everything that Chelsea did well last season, so he will be disappointed that he doesn’t have a goal and a couple assists already this season.

“You need to be playing well to play for England, that’s for sure. It can all change quickly and he can get a goal or assist from somewhere and end up with some pretty decent figures. To cement himself in England’s World Cup starting line-up, then he’s got to start getting himself some goals.”

A former player speaks out on Graham Potter

Wayne Routledge, who played under the new Chelsea manager at EFL Championship side Swansea City, has waxed lyrical on the new Blues boss during this international break.

“He [Potter] has got a very calming aura about him,” the wide player told Compare.bet. “He is very understanding, and he is straight to the point.

“But Graham is pretty straight with how he wants to do things and how he sees the game, how he sees certain structures or plans of play, and he is not afraid to change things or make decisions off the back if he does not feel it is going the way he expected.”

He added on the long-term project element of Potter’s management: “It’s something that’s obviously not a given at Chelsea, but if he gets the time and he [Potter] gets his structure right in what they want to do I would expect them to be successful in the future.”

Kai Havertz makes Thomas Tuchel admission and backs Graham Potter to deliver

Kai Havertz did not expect Thomas Tuchel to be sacked by Chelsea given the trophies won and success enjoyed during the German’s reign at Stamford Bridge. But the forward insists the Blues are still “in for a good time” under new head coach Graham Potter.

It was a little more than two weeks ago that Chelsea – to the shock of players, staff, and supporters – announced Tuchel’s departure. It’s understood the decision was taken after a breakdown in the relationship between the 49-year-old and the club’s new co-owners, Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali.

Chelsea had also started the campaign poorly; Tuchel’s final match at the helm proved to be a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League. However, that is not believed to have influenced the thinking of the new ownership, who appear to have already decided to part ways with Tuchel before the loss in Croatia.

“[It surprised] me too, especially when you consider how we’ve played in the past year and a half and what we’ve won,” Havertz said in an interview with Kicker this week while away on international duty with England.

“We’re currently sixth in the table, so you can’t speak about a messed up start to the season – and we have many newcomers who first have to acclimatise.”
