It is well known that Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is very tactical and also demanding of his players, and Mason Mount has indeed felt the brunt of his manager’s prowess.
It was believed that Mount played in three different positions in the FA Cup clash against Sheffield United, but the 22-year-old has indeed revealed that he actually played in five different positions.
“It has been a bit of a roller-coaster over the last couple of months but it has been a valuable experience; I have learned a lot after being captain for the first time,” Mount said.
“I’ve played five positions in a match, not three! I changed a couple more but all good experiences for me to learn. I’m versatile and I can change positions. That’s what the modern game is about.
“Coming into the international break, we’re all excited, buzzing to be back together. We’re ready to be down to business and play the games. It feels like yesterday that I made my debut at Wembley and it has gone so quick.
“You gain confidence and learn more in each camp. You want to keep getting better and better; that’s the main thing. That’s both personally and as a group. We are on the right track. It starts with these World Cup qualifiers and the game tomorrow.”
