Chelsea youngster Mason Mount worked with Frank Lampard last season while the pair were at Derby County.

Lampard was the manager of Derby County while Mount joined them on loan last season, and he impressed massively.

Blues boss Frank Lampard has now confirmed that Mount will be a part of the Chelsea first team this season.

Mount believes Lampard will give him his chances at Chelsea, and also revealed that he has learnt from the legend how to make timely runs into the box.

“It doesn’t matter how old you are,” Mount told Sky Sports. “If you are ready and he thinks you are good enough then he’s going to put you in there.

“Being a midfielder and being at Chelsea you obviously look at him as a role model.

“For me working with him last year, and also this year, I have learnt so much off him.

“Speaking with him day in, day out I’ve been getting little stuff off his game, like him talking to me and telling me how to get into the box.

“I’m learning off him every day and it’s very exciting.

“You can see the group of players that we have is world class.

“For me coming into this team and working with them each day – I’m learning off them and that’s the best thing for me at the moment.”
