The Three Lions are hoping to make it three wins from three World Cup qualifiers at Wembley, moving closer to a place at the 2022 tournament in Qatar.

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is expected to overcome a knock that saw him start Tuesday’s training session indoors with the medical and performance team.

The Southampton captain, 26, played 90 minutes in the 5-0 win against San Marino, while he was a 71st minute substitute for Kalvin Phillips in the 2-0 victory at Albania on Sunday.
