Chelsea spent over £200m on transfers during the summer, with the likes of Edouard Mendy, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz costing the club over £220m.

Chelsea’s summer signings are yet to light up the league as expected, and former Leicester City striker Gary Lineker has gone on to hail Mason Mount as the team’s best player.

Mount rescued Chelsea by scoring the winning goal in the 78th minute against Fulham, and Lineker believes he’s the best player in the Chelsea team.

“Huge goal for Chelsea and Frank Lampard scored by Mason Mount,” the Match of the Day pundit wrote on Twitter following Mount’s matchwinning performance against Fulham.

“For all their signings and money spent, for me, he’s their best player. Great technically, fantastic energy and work rate, really consistent, can play in multiple positions and scores goals.”
