Frank Lampard says Chelsea will need to assess the extent of Mason Mount's ankle injury

Mason Mount's Champions League debut for Chelsea lasted just nine minutes before he was taken off with an ankle injury.

The 20-year-old England midfielder suffered the knock after an ugly challenge from Valencia's Francis Coquelin in the Blues' 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Mount was on the end of a high tackle by the former Arsenal player, who received a yellow card from referee Cuneyt Cakir.

Mount, who has established himself in the first team under Frank Lampard since a loan spell with Derby last season, will be assessed over the next couple of days to determine the extent of the injury.

Lampard said: "He's got an ankle injury which we don't know how bad it is.

"We will have to assess it over the next 24-48 hours to see the scale of the injury, to see how the injury is.

"It's too soon to say, but it's an ankle injury and obviously it's a shame because he was playing so well and started the game well and we had to make a change early."

Mount got extensive treatment on the pitch and received a standing ovation as he limped off to be replaced by Spanish winger Pedro at Stamford Bridge.

It is a concern for Lampard ahead of Sunday's visit by Liverpool in the Premier League, live on Sky Sports.
