Chelsea were 3-0 winners against Watford at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night.

Olivier Giroud, Willian and Ross Barkley scored all three goals for Chelsea to send the Blues back into fourth place.

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount had a good game and despite not scoring a goal or making an assist, the 21-year-old was named man of the match.

Mount was taken aback to be named Man of the Match and told Sky Sports after the game: “I’m quite surprised I got Man of the Match to be fair!

“I didn’t think I did much, I was just trying to keep the ball and keep it ticking over. I mean, Ross got a goal and got an assist, and the other boys, Oli, but yeah a brilliant performance.

“We spoke before the game saying we needed to have that reaction and come out and show what we can do. It was a must-win and we did that. I think we were really clinical in the final third, taking our chances, and we could have had a couple more.”
