Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount reveals that the injury sustained against Southampton at the weekend "is just a little knock".

Mason Mount has insisted that he is ready for Chelsea's Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid, despite sustaining an injury against Southampton at the weekend.

The England international scored from the penalty spot in Saturday's 1-1 draw at St Mary's to make it four goals and three assists in the Premier League this term.

However, the 22-year-old was later seen with an ice pack on his knee, sparking fears that he may miss Tuesday's last-16 first leg with Atletico.

Mount has played down those injury concerns, though, and could now start the tie in Bucharest.

"It's just a little knock," he said. "A bit of bruising but I'll be fine. Nothing can stop me."

Chelsea follow up their European tie against Atletico with league games against Manchester United and Liverpool.
