According to Chelsea legend Frank Leboeuf, Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount was awful against Tottenham Hotspur as the Blues crashed out of the Carabao Cup.

Timo Werner gave Chelsea the lead in north London but Erik Lamela’s late equaliser took the game to penalties and Mount missed the target after nine successive converted spot-kicks.

“We saw so many defensive mistakes from Chelsea last season. And they still have work to do,” the former Chelsea and France defender told ESPN FC.

“But it’s not just the defenders, it’s the midfielders too, they have to work and come back.

“Mason Mount was awful all game. He’s a very talented player but some players have to wake up if they want to have a career.

“A career is not only six months or a year, it has to be more.”
