Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount returned to full training yesterday with the 22-year-old now expected to be involved against Leicester this weekend.
Mount did come on as a substitute in the Blues’ last match against Burnley but he had to sit out international duty with England due to dental surgery.
Supporters on Twitter are very happy to hear that Mount will be involved when Thomas Tuchel’s side travel to the King Power Stadium on Saturday:

It’s been a difficult few weeks for Mount. Issues with his wisdom teeth mean he hasn’t actually played a full 90 minutes since he scored a hat-trick in the 7-0 win over Norwich City last month.
Fans will be hoping that, now he is finally back to full fitness, he can replicate that man of the match performance when his side take on the Foxes. It won’t be an easy game but you’d back Mount to make a telling contribution, even if he is used off the bench.
