Mount And Pulisic Ruled Out Of Manchester City Clash While Mendy To Start In Goal

Mason Mount has joined Christian Pulisic on the sidelines, with the duo expected to miss Saturday's home Premier League match against Manchester City, according to Thomas Tuchel.

Mount picked up a slight knock during Carabao Cup triumph over Aston Villa in midweek, and the ailment will keep him out of the match against Pep Guardiola's side on Saturday afternoon, as will Pulisic, who is still working on his fitness.

Better news surrounds goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, who, according to Tuchel, is fit to take his spot between the sticks and will start the game.

Tuchel said at his pre-match press conference that Christian Pulisic is still out.

Mason Mount is out because this game comes too soon for him after sustaining a small injury in the midweek meeting against Aston Villa.

Mount's absence is definitely a setback for the Blues, as the England international is an important component of Tuchel's plans, and our German leader has acknowledged the disappointment of both coach and player in Mount's absence for such a crucial match.
