Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount can play in many midfield positions and has played in the number 8 and number 10 roles this season.

The 21-year-old has also been used on the flanks at times, but after a massive performance against Everton on Sunday, the Chelsea academy product has admitted that he was in his best position against the Toffees.

“I always see myself as a No.8 because I like to do the other side of the game as well, not just going forward and attacking,” the 21-year-old said. “I’ve played No.10 throughout my career, I’ve always gone in between so I don’t mind now.”

Mount was also pleased with the team’s general performance and the clean sheet against Everton.

“Speaking about it in the changing room afterwards, it is about time we scored a few goals at home, kept a clean sheen sheet and had a very dominant performance. It all came together,” Mount continued.

“You always want to win your home games, that’s the most important thing. Obviously, the last two games we had Liverpool – a tough, tough game – and then [Everton] again as well. So, we had to stay focused because they were two tough games.

“The main thing was to keep a clean sheet because that’s more important or similarly important to scoring goals. We did that and the goals come when we are playing well, with combinations and finishing off good attacks.”
