Chelsea have churned many a quality prospect over the past few years or so. Their academy is among the most respected and successful in England, ostensibly producing top-notch talent on the whim. However, a lionshare of these prospects are fleeced out to a host of clubs all over Europe and end up never accruing the chance to sparkle for the club that nurtured him.
Mason Mount is an exception to that deflating and even irksome reality. Under Lampard’s guidance, the multi-faceted, 20 year old midfielder has sparkled for Chelsea this season, producing noteworthy displays against a robust Liverpool side, a gritty Leicester City, and most recently in an enthralling encounter against a motivated and knotty outfit in the form of a Pukki-inspired Norwich City.
Mount delivered a scintillating display down the left-wing at Carrow Road, generating two key chances and slotting home Chelsea’s second of the day to help secure the Blues’ first three points of the 2019/20 Premier League season.
Here are a batch of tweets filtered out by Chelsea expressing their adulation for their radiant, blossoming gem:
