Mason Mount has been hailed to take over from Frank Lampard at Chelsea, and the young midfielder has already scored four goals this season.

Mount is dangerous in front of goal and is tipped to be a high scoring midfielder after his goalscoring exploits while on loan with Derby County and Vitesse.

Mount was called up for international duty by Gareth Southgate, and the 20-year-old is in awe of Tottenham striker Harry Kane and has revealed that he’s learning from the sharp forward.

“I thought they were booing me when I came off,” Mount said of Kane. “It has gone now, everything has been worked out in the camp and now I think the focus goes on to the next game.

“We are a strong side together, we get together and stay together. So we will just focus on the next game.

“He is a top, top player and to play with him and be around him, learning off him is the best thing as a young player coming up. He is brilliant for the squad and a top leader.

“We know what we have in the squad, we know we have competition and that is good because it keeps everyone on top of their game. The attacking threat is frightening going forward and on our day, we can score as many goals as we want.

“There are still things we can improve on and we are working hard to get better and better. That was the main thing, coming into the game we knew we needed a point, but a win was on our mind and we knew coming to Wembley for the 1000th game we could put on a big show and I thought we did that.”
