Chelsea Grant Loan Stars Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori Permission to Play Against Them

Chelsea Grant Loan Stars Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori Permission to Play Against Them

Chelsea have granted permission to two of their most promising players – Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori – to play AGAINST them in the EFL Cup later this month.

Maurizio Sarri’s side will host Derby County in the last-16 of the competition on Halloween, when their all-time top-scorer Frank Lampard will return to his former stomping ground as a manger for the first time.

But now they’ll have to face some of their own players too, after it was announced today that Mount and Tomori had been granted the right to play in the match against their parent club.

Usually, loan players are prohibited from playing against their primary employers but it seems Chelsea are willing to risk the embarrassment of losing to a goal from one of their own players in order to ensure the youngsters are given the opportunity to progress.

Mount, 19, has been particularly eye-catching for the Rams this season, and has even been called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

So will this decision come back to haunt Chelsea? What do you think?
