Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has revealed the mentality of the team has changed this season compared to last season.
Mount believes Chelsea are more ruthless this season and it showed in the victory over Newcastle United on Saturday.
Mount said: “The ruthlessness we have now to kill games off, to score goals. You could see against Newcastle, it was a tough game and maybe last season we would have gone there and maybe struggled to score and keep a clean sheet.
“The evolution of our performances and the way we are playing at the moment you can tell we have become more solid in defence, as a defensive unit and as a team.
“Being ruthless in front of goal. We have shown that we have scored a lot of goals this season, but we are never content.
“We know what we can achieve as a group and hopefully we can keep winning games, keep being strong mentally because the season is very tough.
“There are so many games coming up so we need to go into games with the confidence we are going to win it and I think that is the difference between last season and this season so far.”
