Chelsea star Mason Mount and Aston Villa ace Jack Grealish are two of the best attacking midfielders in the Premier League, and both are part of the current England squad.
When all the players are fit, available and in form, England manager Gareth Southgate may not be able to play the two attacking players together, like he did against the Republic of Ireland at Wembley Stadium in London on Thursday.
As reported by Sky Sports, there have been calls for Grealish to be given more minutes given his form for Villa so far this season.
The 25-year-old England international has been superb for the Villans, while 21-year-old Mount has not been at his best for Chelsea so far this campaign.
England are back in action on Sunday evening when they take on Belgium away from home in UEFA Nations League Group A2.
