World Cup: Chris Sutton suggests midfielder to replace Chelsea’s Mount in England

Former Chelsea striker, Chris Sutton, believes Connor Gallagher can replace Mason Mount in England’s 2020 World Cup squad.

Mount withdrew from England’s squad for the World Cup Qualifiers during the recent international break.

The 22-year-old Chelsea star was sidelined after undergoing dental surgery which has kept him out of action in the past few weeks.

His absence provided a great opportunity for Gallagher, who produced an impressive display in England’s victory over San Marino earlier this week.

Gallagher’s performances caught the eye of BBC pundit Chris Sutton, who has tipped the Chelsea youngster to replace Mount in England’s squad for next year’s World Cup in Qatar.

“What about Conor Gallagher as well? What a start to the season he’s had,” Sutton said while discussing England’s potential options for the tournament.

“I actually forgot Mason Mount earlier and put Gallagher in because maybe (he’s) a little bit different. But, it’s not impossible. It’s not impossible for him to force his way in if he carries on his form,” he added.
