3.Players cover the mouth to prevent the opponents from reading their tactics.This mostly happens whenever they are taking corner's, players will usually cover their mouth as they are standing over the ball for the corner.In so doing,the opponent cannot easily try to guess who will take the kick.

These are just some of the reasons, even though there might be others specific to the players themselves.Now you know.
