Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard Praises Mason Mount


Mason Mount has been praised by Chelsea manager Frank Lampard for the way the midfielder has stepped up and become a key figure in the English Premier League side.

SaveChelsea had reported earlier that Chelsea recorded its first competitive win under Lampard’s leadership, thanks to Tammy Abraham’s brace and Mount’s lone strike.

The Blues came into the game after losing its first English Premier League game of the season against Manchester United and drawing the second against Leicester City.

Lampard’s side had also lost the UEFA Super Cup in a thrilling penalty shoot-out this season.

Speaking on Mount’s performance, Lampard said,

“I don’t want to say he’s surprised me with the way he’s taking to the Premier League because I have real belief in him,” said Lampard.

“But he has made me stand up and take notice of just how far he can go in the game. Doing well last year at Derby was great but that’s one thing, and coming to Chelsea and performing at this level with all the competition for places is another.

“Mason has a fantastic character and that’s part of his overall package, plus he has the quality on the ball. Intelligent players who are hungry and have that talent and are fantastic to work with and Mason is exactly that.

“He’s impressed me even more from pre-season and I believe he can absolutely go to the top if he continues to work hard,” the Chelsea manager added.
