Jamie Redknapp believes Frank Lampard favourite Mason Mount has the look of a ‘future Chelsea captain’.

Mount has become an important player for the Blues since returning from a loan spell at Derby. He made 53 appearance for Chelsea in all competitions last season and has made 18 Premier League appearances for the Blues this season.

Speaking before Chelsea lost 2-0 at the King Power Stadium, Redknapp told Sky Sports: “[England boss] Gareth Southgate loves him and Frank Lampard is the same.

“He’s the first name on the [Chelsea] team sheet to a certain extent, because of what he does off the ball.

“There’s talk that in a couple of years he could be the Chelsea captain and he’s got that look about him. He’s the sort of player who isn’t faxed by any occasion.”
