Chelsea boss Frank Lampard knows Mason Mount too well and they both had a good time together at Derby County last season.
Upon being named as Chelsea boss and with the transfer ban, Lampard knew it was time for Mount to feature for the senior team, and his Chelsea career started with a bang.
However, Mount’s goals dried up since early December and the young midfielder has been worried about it, which has been making him take shots anyhow just to get a goal.
Speaking after the game against Everton where he scored Chelsea’s first goal, Mount has revealed that he has been speaking with the manager Frank Lampard about it and also his dad who coaches him as well.
Mount said: “Against Bournemouth, I took a shot in the first half where it was an impossible angle and I was just trying to maybe score a worldie when it wasn’t on,’ he continued. ‘In the Bayern game, I snatched at a shot with my left foot when it just wasn’t on but I wanted to score so much.
“I spoke with Frank about that but it’s been more just me personally looking at my game and I’ve been speaking to my dad as well. He’s very into football and watching my game, looking at where I can improve and he helps me a lot. He watches every game I play and then tells me after what I did well and what I didn’t do the best.
“He used to play – not at a high level – and he’s been a coach as well. He just wants to help make me the best I can be so I listen to every bit of advice and try to learn from it. Coming off the pitch and speaking afterwards in the car is something we’ve done ever since I was a little kid so nothing really changes.”
