MASON MOUNT is pushing for a start against Brighton after Chelsea’s disappointing 1-0 loss to Premier League champions Manchester City.
The England international managed just nine minutes of action at the Etihad, leaving him little to no time to make an impact.
Christian Pulisic faces a fight to keep his starting spot too, after being subbed with 20 minutes left to play on Saturday.
