Mason Mount has had an incredible career so far, and at just age 20 one can only imagine how far he’d go.
Mount impressed while on loan last season with Derby County, and one thing the young midfielder has in his arsenal is his ability to score goals.
Mount has also found the net twice in four league outings this season as he looks to play a key role under Frank Lampard’s guidance at Stamford Bridge.
His fine form has earned him a call-up to the England national team, and his best friend and former Chelsea academy product Declan Rice has revealed that the Chelsea midfielder can score in every game.
Rice who’s currently at West Ham told Standard Sport: “I’m not surprised at all [with his form].
“I’ve said to loads of people, he could score in every game if he wanted to. I can tell he’s training with Frank and they’re working really well because he’s like a second striker, making those runs which Lampard used to do. He’s going to keep doing that at Chelsea for years.”
Mount has been likened to Chelsea legend and current boss Frank Lampard, who has scored the most goals for the Blues as a player, 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.”
