Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is Chelsea’s all-time top scorer and former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane believes Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is a goal threat from midfield like Lampard.

When asked if Mount plays like Lampard, Keane said on ITV: “Most definitely.

“And I think he’s definitely a goal threat. We’ve seen him already, obviously still early in his career, but even out on loan last year.

“He’s getting in very good positions, he’s brave, he’s shown a bit of courage and he looks like he’s got that knack, like Frank, of getting in these positions and actually finishing these chances off.

“A lot of players get in good positions – it’s that end product. He looks like he’s got it.

“If you’ve got an attacking player putting the ball in the back of the net, what a big plus to have in your team.”
