England boss Gareth Southgate has hailed Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount as a top player and believes he is underappreciated by Chelsea fans.

“He’s a top player. He can receive under pressure. He’s intelligent with his movement. He’s, of course, still learning. To find space in the first half was difficult,” Gareth Southgate told talkSPORT of Mason Mount.

“But in a tactical game where it’s just as important defensively what the forwards do, to have a player like him who can do both sides. I read a lot of things about Mason and I think he’s a very under-appreciated player – but not by us.”

Mount scored the winner as England came from behind to beat Belgium 2-1 at Wembley on Sunday.
