Former Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has revealed why Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is a better player than Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.
Redknapp said on Sky Sports: “He’s [Mount] an ultimate team player, he’s an incredibly hard-working young man.
“Off-the-field, all I hear is good things about his attitude, he wants to learn, he wants to do well, he chases people down.
“That’s why, right now, when you ask why is he playing ahead of Jack Grealish – this will be the reason why Gareth wants him to play because he will come and do the dirty work as well as scoring winning goals for his team.
“I’m a bit frustrated. I keep hearing, ‘Is it Grealish or is it Mount?’ – that’s unfair. We’re putting unfair pressure on a really good young player here because he shouldn’t have to feel as if he doesn’t do well today, everyone’s gonna be talking about Grealish.
“It’s already hard enough playing at this level.”
