#5 Mason Mount stars for the Blues
England U-21 international Mason Mount put in a Man of the Match performance for the Blues. Mount was brilliant on the day as he played in his preferred number 10 position. The young Englishman was involved in almost every attacking move for the Blues and he scored the opening goal on the day.
It was his effective pressing that was the highlight of that goal as he won the ball off Ndidi just in front of the box and put it past Kasper Schmeichel.
Mount displayed his quality against Leicester and if he can be consistent enough, Chelsea and Frank Lampard will have a brilliant player on their hands.
