Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has praised Chelsea academy graduate Mason Mount for stepping up and becoming an important player in the Chelsea team.
Mount impressed in Chelsea’s 3-2 victory over Norwich, scoring either side of a Tammy Abraham brace as we recorded our first victory of the campaign.
“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.”
Mount’s goal against Norwich was his second of the season after his goal in the 1-1 draw against Leicester.
