Thomas Tuchel has discovered his own Marco Reus at Chelsea following the 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday.
This is according to Jermaine Jenas who believes Tuchel has found his own Marco Reus at Chelsea in the form of Mason Mount.
Mount has been handed a more attacking role in Tuchel’s new system, rather than as a deep midfielder under Frank Lampard.
Jenas told BT Sport after the game: “It’s going to be interesting to see how Thomas Tuchel sees him.
“We talked about it before the game, that adaptability.
“He’s already alluded to the fact he’s having to play a bit higher up the pitch. Maybe he sees him in more a Marco Reus type role?
“That kind of plays higher up but wants more goals and can be creative, can be more of a provider as well.
“It’s going to be an interesting period for players like Mason Mount. Exciting, but he’s adapting his game and obviously he’s a player that wants to work hard and get better, so I think he’ll thrive.”
Meanwhile, Tuchel admits Mount is a good presence in the Chelsea dressing room.
Tuchel said: ”What makes me very happy is he is a nice guy, a totally open guy and has a very positive aura and energy in the dressing room and out on the pitch.”
