Tuchel reveals why Mount is missing Chelsea’s clash with Newcastle

A potential absence for Mount had not been discussed in the build-up to the weekend.

“He should have started but he got ill overnight and so we sent him home to London so that we can take care of him better and that he can recover better,” Tuchel told Chelsea’s 5th Stand app ahead of the game on Tyneside.

The Blues are also likely to be without strikers Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner until after the international break, though Christian Pulisic made a timely return to training at Cobham this week and the likes of Andreas Christensen (tooth), captain Cesar Azpilicueta (shoulder) and Ruben Loftus-Cheek (hip) are also back fit.
