When we played Wolves in the FA Cup he said (something like) leaving players for two weeks without a game is dangerous (we had no midweek match before or after that tie) which is why a lot of the first team were playing.

I do agree with him to be honest and I feel that was why the CL final last season had the pace of a pre season match.

OK, thank you. It's as I thought. He outright said it, not alluded to it.

I know you are a big Mount fan and you have his pic as your profile and all...but Cheek is just in another level. If Cheek return to the level he was before getting injured then there is no way Mount will play over Cheek on pure merit, because Cheek is better in every aspect of the game. Cheek can boss the midfield, he has great finish, great header, great decision making. There is no comparison between those two players and Cheek fits even more the style Lampard wants.
 

I am a fan but that doesn't mean I can't be objective, for example i would admit I overestimated him from a technical point of view as he's good but not as much as thought in that regard.

Had Sarri remained I would agree that Ruben would be the first choice in that position but now we're playing a system that requires an insane of energy and off the ball/tactical nous which while Ruben has heavily improved on that beyond anything I can imagine, Mount is unbelievable for his age in that regard, Derby fell off a cliff when he was injured last season because they simply missed his energy in midfield and couldn't compete with anyone half decent.

I think Mount is the type of player due to his intelligence, movement, work rate, and finishing will find a lot of ways to get playing time. But no doubt i rate a fully fit RLC over Mount, his combination of physical and technical ability is off the chart.

We’ll see how Ruben fairs. Still think many are over hyping him. 

Mount has been absolutely vital for us in this system.

I dont think that Mount offered us that much in recent weeks. He was pretty bad yesterday and apart from last weeks PL match, he has lost a lot of form. He can still recover from that though

I beg to differ. His overall play helps become the team more direct, thus creating more chances. He's probably looked a little off pace due to fatigue.

Any update for his return date? He should be playing practice games mid November, we really need him in December.

Any news when he might be back?? We desperately need him in midfield, we dont have a proper midfield outlet in games like today when we need to be compact in the last 10-15min.

Apparently back in light training. I would say a month till full fitness and 2-3 more weeks till match fitness.

While I cannot wait to see him back in the team, another part of me is not getting overexcited as I cannot see him staying fit for a longer period of time, sadly.

Think as long as his recovery goes well a 433 with him taking Masons place will be likely, cant see him slotting in anywhere else unless he plays off the front as well but I dont know. His physicality and ability to break the lines with his direct powerful runs is a huge plus.

Maybe he managed to get rid of his back pain.

I am so tired of seeing us being bullied in the middle of the park. Can not wait to have the huge presence of RLC back. He was our x-factor last season. I so hope he will be back to full fitness. Really disappointed to see how his recovery has been slowed down.

We'll probably get him back in February.
