The 23-year-old is Chelsea’s third top scorer this season, even though he has been hampered by injuries. He is also their most creative player, having registered eight assists.

Having won the Champions League, the Super Cup and the Club World Cup, Mount is desperate to try to help Chelsea win another trophy.

Speaking before the Palace game, Tuchel said: “We will push for the league cup final.

“He has injured ligaments in the very first minute of the final unfortunately.

“The Champions League seems to be very, very close and we’ll try hard for the cup final.”
