Frank Lampard has revealed how Mason Mount’s reacted to Chelsea Signing Kai Havertz.
SaveChelsea reports that the 21-year-old was a regular in Lampard’s starting XI last season, featuring in more than 50 games over the course of the campaign.
Accordingly, the England international could see his place under some threat with the number of new signings the Blues have made this summer.

Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner will add to the attacking threat, but it is the signing of Kai Havertz which could be a direct comparison to Mount.
The Germany international joined the Blues on a £62million deal and is expected to make a big impact in the Chelsea squad.
But Lampard has revealed that Mount has taken to the challenge of the new players well.
“With Mason, the conversation he has is the way that he trains every day,” Lampard said.
“When the last two days we have trained with these new players that everyone is very excited about and focused on at the moment, I have focused on all the squad at all times.
“The way that Mason has trained over the last few days, having come back with England, shows to me when I talk about the way players react in a positive way and up their game, Mason is one of them and that’s what I want from all the young lads.”
Several of last season’s youngsters will be in for a fight for a place, despite having been regulars last season.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori will be looking to keep their place in the side, but Lampard insists that he needs a large squad to work with.
“In a modern day squad, much more than 17 years ago when we were talking about before, needs to have flexibility, needs to have competition. I don’t think we need to find direct battles at this point of the season, no,” Lampard added.
