Mason Mount scored his first Chelsea goal in the 1-1 draw against Leicester City on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
It took just seven minutes of the midfielder’s Stamford Bridge debut for him to score his first Chelsea goal after stealing the ball from Wilfred Ndidi and slotting past Kasper Schmeichel.
Mount described his feeling about scoring his first Chelsea goal: “It feels a bit surreal, having been at the club for such a long time and now finally breaking into the first team,” he added.
“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and now there are fans with my name on the back of their shirts!
“It’s crazy to process but my focus is to keep working hard day-in, day-out in training so I can play as many games as I can and prove to the manager that I’m ready. I’m loving every minute of it.”
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard believes Mount’s goal against Leicester City showcased everything that makes him such a special talent.
Lampard said: “The epitome of his talent was shown in his goal – great energy off the ball to close people down and then the quality to finish it. He could have scored two more goals in that opening period actually but we know he’s going to get better and better.
“That was the first of some big moments for Mason and I’m delighted for him on that level but I know he’ll have wanted that to be part of a win.”
