Mason Mount has hailed Willian following his performance in the 2-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday.

Willian was the star of the show and he put in a man of the match performance away at Tottenham.

Mount has now revealed that he finds it an honour to play with the Brazilian, having watched him as a kid.

“He’s a brilliant player,” he said. “I was a big fan of his when I was younger coming through at Chelsea so now to train with him and play with him is a massive honour. I’m learning from him and it’s great.

“He’s a world-class player and that’s what he brings in the big games – he steps up.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has named Mason Mount as Chelsea’s most promising young player.

Speaking to Canal Plus, Kante said: “Out of all the Chelsea players, one player who has the biggest potential is, Mason Mount.

“His combination play, his shooting technique, passing technique. How he sees the game. He could become a very good player.”
