Chelsea warn Mason Mount after he ignores quarantine instruction

Chelsea announced their players would be following government guidelines and self-isolating after Mount's teammate Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive for the condition last week.

Chelsea midfielder, Mason Mount has apologised to manager, Frank Lampard after breaking the club's self-isolation orders last weekend.

Mount wasn't meant to go to any public places, but was seen playing football at the Trent Park Football centre in Barnet, North London.

Rice has not been put under lockdown and will not be punished by his club, but Mount is not supposed to be outside as he may have contracted the coronavirus from Hudson-Odoi and could therefore spread the virus even further.

It is understood that Chelsea players have been reminded about the self-isolation protocols and are expected to resume training only when they are out of isolation between March 22 and 23.

Chelsea players have been posting on social media about their efforts to keep fit while stuck at home, while club bosses have ordered a deep clean of their Surrey training centre.

The Premier League has been suspended until April 4, but it's likely that this date will be extended and there is considerable doubt as to whether the season will be finished.

Rice was not under the same restrictions from West Ham as his England team-mate Mount.
