“Mason is gutted to have missed out,” Tuchel added.


“It happened against Villa in the second half, and he played through the injury to finish the game. He was even confident enough to take a crucial penalty, so his injury caught everyone off guard.

“The steps he's taking are significant, and he could have been able to play if the game had been a day later. Although it is a minor injury, it is disappointing for both him and us because he is a player that we rely on.

“However, regardless of his value or how much we rely on him, the job is to find answers without him and return him as quickly as possible.”
