Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount got a deserved call-up to the England national team after a fine form that started from last season while on loan with Derby County.

The 20-year-old has scored twice in four Premier League outings this season and was called up by Gareth Southgate for the Three Lions games against Bulgaria and Kosovo.

Mount has often times been likened to Chelsea legend and current boss Frank Lampard, and he has admitted that he’s always looking to talk to the boss and learning from him where to improve in his runs into the box.

“After training we do some finishing sometimes, talking to him every day especially after games on what I can do better and where I can make runs to get into the box,” Mount said.

“I am always speaking to him and trying to learn every day, but mostly after training doing finishing. There is no better person to learn from than him.

“Having one or two chats with him (about the call up), he said it’s obviously such a proud moment playing for your country, just go and enjoy it.

“It’s such an exciting time in English football and he just said go there and enjoy playing football for England.”

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has also seen some similarities between Mount and Lampard as he admitted that Mount has an eye for goal just like the Blues legend turned manager.

Barkley said: “I believe he will be in the squad 100 per cent when it comes to it. Then it is down to him but I believe he will be [in the England Euro 2020 team] because of how good he is and the things I have seen this season.

“The way he arrives in the box and gets shots away early, it is similar to Lamps. He has a really good technique with how he finishes as well. He is a brilliant player.”
