Lampard made the remark after Mount’s impressive performance in Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Fulham on Saturday.
Lampard said: “Mason turned 22 years old last week, the age I came to Chelsea at. I wasn’t blowing the world away in my first way my first year or so, Mason already has so many games under his belt.”
He added: “I thought Mason’s performance all round was fantastic. He has been very, very good for us in the past year, this year. He is a big example of why I talk about youth.”
