Chelsea youngster Mason Mount has received applauds since making his debut for Chelsea this season, as the young midfielder has impressed for the Blues under Frank Lampard.

However, Aston Villa legend Andy Gray has spoken highly of Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and he believes that the 24-year-old is good enough for any of the Big Six side.

Gray even claimed that Grealish is better than Mount at the moment.

The Villa legend told beIN Sports: “I know he’s a Villa fan, his family are all Villa fans, he loves the club and he loves being captain.

“But Jack’s 24 now and I think there is a decision coming at the end of this season. And I hate to say it, but I don’t think he’ll be there in August.

“If I was a coach of any of the top six, and I include Liverpool in this, he would make the team better.

“He is, in my opinion, better than any of Liverpool’s midfield players. I think he is better than Keita. I think he’s better than Wijnaldum. I think he’d get into the City side. He’s much better than Foden. I just think he’s that good.

“When you give someone a football, you watch somebody on a football pitch. He has a football at his feet and in his control. Special players, they just stand out.

“He might make mistakes, Jack, and he’s only 24. But the ball is part of his body. He moves with it beautifully. He has a goal in him. He creates for other players. He works hard.

“He’d walk into Spurs’ side. At Chelsea , I know they talk about Mason Mount but I think right now he’s better than Mason Mount.

“If he’s getting sold this summer then I guarantee you that a host of the biggest clubs will be after him.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
