Chelsea legend Ashley Cole believes Chelsea boss Frank Lampard should always play Mason Mount in midfield because the midfielder brings energy, quality and freedom for other players to thrive.
“Frank has a dilemma but it’s a good dilemma,” Cole told Sky Sports after the 4-1 victory over Sheffield United.
“[Christian] Pulisic at the back end of last season was on fire and everyone was like, ‘Wow look what this kid can produce’.
“He was the star of the team at the time.
“But now with so many attacking options it will be difficult at times when everyone is fit.
“I love having Mason in midfield I think he brings energy, the quality and freedom for other players to thrive.”
