Shortly after Ben Chilwell and Mason mount came in contact with fellow chelsea star Billy Gilmour, they were forced off from featuring for the three lions pending when they would be diagnosed negative to the virus.
Mason mount and Ben Chilwell after the England game where the Three Lions won vai a solo goal by Raheem sterling praised the entire England teams most especially their position rival’s.
Chilwell on his Twitter wrote this to his teammates; “It’s tough to take and I’m absolutely gutted but i wish the boys all the best tonight in the game, I’ll be cheering you all off the pitch. I will make sure i am fully ready for action when i can rejoin the squad. Lets go England”.
While Mason mount wrote this on his Twitter; “I’m certainly eviscerated to have to eluded tonight’s game. I’ll be cheering the boys as usual even though not on the pitch and ensuring that I’m ready to go again when called upon. Come on England!”.
While both players where certainly not happy being left out, they tried their best to cheer their teammates to success, also this action by uefa would certainly be detremental to their international career as Gareth Southgate would have enough time to analyze his options and find his best starting XI as he is currently in a delima on who to start as he is currently spoilt with choice.
Peter cech wasn’t the most happiest of person seeing talents like Mason mount and Ben Chilwell left out of the england team for covid-19 reasons as he felt the matter was treated unfairly.
He believed the entire Scotland team that were in contact with Billy Gilmour were tested negative and they shared same dressing room with the player who was claimed to be affected.
Opinions on Twitter;
@GavH_ Steve Clarke must be immune from covid along with the rest of Scottish squad who shared dressing room, coach and hotels with billy!! Absolute joke 🤷♂️🤷♂️🏴.
@Lian80176484 The whole scottish squad was tested and results were negative. They followed UEFA rules for covid and were allowed to carry on. England followed what NHS England said not the UEFA covid rules. Its as simple as that.
@TracyDawn17 I’m actually baffled by this. The whole Scotland squad is OK to play. They’ve spent more time will Billy then the 3 mins or so than Chilwell and @masonmount_10 did. I Truly don’t get it. 😕
The top five richest clubs in the Premier League
Newcastle United fans celebrated when Mike Ashley’s 14-year ownership of the English club came to an end.
There is no doubt that Newcastle is currently the richest club in England after it was purchased by the Saudi-backed consortium for £305m.
Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) purchased 80% of the club shares, while the Reuben Brothers and Amanda Staveley remained with 10% each.
We take a look at the top five richest clubs in the Premier League
1. Newcastle-Saudi Public Investment Fund (£320bn)
Thanks to the massive wealth of the PIF, the Magpies expect key investments, especially in players, to make the club competitive in Europe.
Newcastle United have already started to enjoy the fruits of the new ownership as they have already signed two players, namely Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood.
The PIF is chaired by Mohammed Salman, the Saudi crown prince. He is also the second most important person in Saudi Arabia, after the king. He not only serves as the country’s deputy prime minister but also the Minister of Defence.
2. Manchester City-Sheikh Mansour (£22.9bn)
Mansour is the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and one of the country’s many team owners.
The Magpies have now joined the likes of Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, but the two most high-profile examples have been Manchester City and PSG.
The sheikh owns an interest in Virgin Galactic and is the chairman of the International Petroleum Investment Company.
He bought Manchester City in 2008 when they were a mid-table team, and with his billions, he has turned them into one of the best teams in the world.
His fortune has allowed him to hire Pep Guardiola and a slew of other world-class players, allowing City to become Manchester’s most successful club in the last decade.
As a result, Mansour has hired Khaldoon Al Mubarak to manage the club on a daily basis, while his City Football Group continues to buy clubs all around the world.
3. Chelsea – Roman Abramovich (£9.6b)
In a rumored 15-minute conversation, football’s first high-profile billionaire, purchased Chelsea from Ken Bates in 2003.
Following the hiring of Jose Mourinho the following year, Chelsea became the dominant team in the Premier League thanks to the Russian’s riches.
The Blues have won silverware on a consistent basis, winning five league titles and the Champions League twice.
Chelsea FC cost Abramovich £140 million of his billions earned from the sale of previously Russian state-owned businesses he purchased after the Soviet Union fell apart.
4. Arsenal – Stan Kroenke (£6.35bn)
Arsenal’s divisive owner is seldom seen at the Emirates and has a tense rapport with the supporters.
Arsenal’s fortunes have deteriorated throughout his tenure, despite the fact that the team had previously won Premier League titles.
In 1974, Kroenke married Ann Walton, a Walmart heiress, and in 1983, he created the Kroenke Group, a real estate development corporation.
The American, who owns the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams and the NBA’s Denver Nuggets, originally invested in Arsenal in 2007 before acquiring a full stake in the club four years later.
5. Aston Villa – Nassef Sawiris (£5.3bn)
In July 2018, the Egyptian took over as owner from Tony Xia, and saw Villa gain promotion to the Premier League within a year.
Sawiris, who comes from one of Egypt’s wealthiest families, purchased a 55% controlling stake in the club.
His fortune comes from owning a slew of construction, engineering, and construction firms.
With nearly £200 million spent over the past two summers, Dean Smith has consolidated the Midlands team as a top-flight outfit once again.
Chelsea vs Malmo: team news and preview
Defending champions Chelsea host Swedish side Malmo on Wednesday in the third match of group H.
Chelsea are currently second in the group H table, with 1 win, against Zenit and 1 loss to Juventus last time out in the campaign.
Meanwhile Malmo are bottom of the group table, with no win and are yet to score a goal in the campaign. They will have to pull something special to go home with a point from the Bridge.
Thomas Tuchel’s side will enjoy a boost in defensive options with the return of Antonio Rudiger and Thiago Silva, who missed out last time the Blues were in action.
The two centre halves missed Saturday’s outing to Brentford, as the Blues edged a narrow 1-0 win but were back in training on Monday.
Rudiger picked up a minor injury while on international duty, while veteran Thiago Silva missed out on training ahead of the clash with Brentford after returning from national call-up on Friday afternoon.
Chelsea will miss the services of Christian Pulisic, who was absent on training on Tuesday, probably still nursing the ankle injury he picked up while playing for USMNT in September.
It remains unclear whether Romelu Lukaku will feature for the Blues as Tuchel has stated that he is “mentally tired” after being overplayed.
“I feel he is a bit mentally tired. For me, he’s overplayed. It’s difficult to judge if he needs a break, or is it better to keep him on the pitch?”
The Belgian left the international squad earlier this month with muscle fatigue.
Lukaku had a remarkable start after re-signing for Chelsea, scoring 4 goals in 4 games but is now six games without a goal.
Blow to Chelsea ahead of Juventus test as Kante ruled out
Chelsea will be without midfield maestro N’Golo Kante for their second Uefa Champions League group H match against Juventus on Wednesday.
Kante has tested positive for coronavirus and is currently quarantining, omitted from the Blues’ travelling squad to Turin.
The French ace is also expected to miss the Premier League tie pitting the Stamford Bridge outfit and the Saints of Southampton over the coming weekend.
Manager Thomas Tuchel will also be forced to rotate his squad that suffered a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday, as defender Reece James and forward Mason Mount are expected to miss the action on Wednesday.
James was forced off after suffering an ankle problem late in the first half of the Man City fixture.
Mount is also facing a fitness test after he picked a knock in the Carabao Cup win over Aston Villa.
New signing Romelu Lukaku will be seeking to get his name back on the score sheet after failing to locate the back of the net against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City previously.
Predicted XI: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rudiger, Chilwell; Jorginho, Kovacic; Havertz, Ziyech, Lukaku.
