Mount’s reaction to Suarez purposefully winding up Chelsea players spotted

Luis Suarez is a master of the dark arts.

He does what he can, whether they’re in the rules of the game or not – just ask Ghana – in order to give his side a fighting chance of winning.

So it should come as no surprise that in Atletico Madrid’s defeat by Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday night that he got up to a few tricks.

BT Sport have in fact compiled clips into a 55 second video showing Suarez doing everything in his power to gain small advantages here and there against the Blues.

And the video captures one particular exchange that leaves Mason Mount completely miffed.

In the clip, the Atletico forward is seen competing for the ball alongside Mount, Jorginho, Timo Werner and Callum Hudson-Odoi.


As Suarez lunges for the ball he crashes into Hudson-Odoi, although appears to look for the contact himself before falling to the ground theatrically.

Diego Simeone is seen appealing for a foul from the touchline behind him as Suarez writhes in supposed pain on the ground.

Mount meanwhile takes a step back and looks down at the former Liverpool and Barcelona striker with a look of sheer confusion.

Olivier Giroud scored the only game of the cagey affair on Tuesday night, but did so in spectacular fashion with an overhead kick.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said of the World Cup winner: “If you see him on a daily basis, you cannot be surprised.

“He is totally fit, his body is in shape and his physicality is on top level.

“He trains like a 20-year-old, like a 24-year-old. He is a guy who has a good mixture of serious and joy in training. He is always positive and it is a big factor for the group.”
