Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount impressed against Rennes and provided the assist for Callum Hudson-Odoi’s goal.
Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud, who scored the winner for the Blues after coming off the bench, praised Mount for settling well into his new midfield role.
“He’s in a very good run. He’s settled well now in this midfield 3, he’s enjoying himself and improving every day,” Giroud told Chelsea’s official website.
“I’m happy for him because again he was decisive with his assist for Callum. We’re all happy to have this guy in the team and dressing room.”
