Mason Mount scored a brilliant free-kick in the first half as Chelsea beat Wolves 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday to secure Champions League football.

When asked what the future holds for Mount, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said: “He will definitely get better, because he is so young and I think sometimes when a player comes in and plays in their breakthrough year and is consistently in the team people sometimes treat them like they’re older than they are.

“He is still young. You saw his technique from the free-kick. He is a special technique, only top players can strike balls in that way.

“His all-round game for the season has been brilliant. His work ethic and training daily is brilliant. So he will get a lot better, and he has contributed a great amount and it is just the start for Mason at Chelsea.”
