Mason Mount was the only scorer on the night, when Chelsea defeated Liverpool 1-0 at Anfield on Thursday night.

Mount scored a fine goal to put Chelsea ahead just before half-time, and his fine finish was accompanied with a weird looking celebration.

To celebrate his goal, Mount sprinted over to the near-side, and then hunched his back slightly and started moving his arms about downwards and did the Frankenstein celebration. He also pretended to fire a fireball into Ben Chilwell’s chest, after Chilwell joined him for the celebration.

When asked for the meaning of his celebration after the game, Mount revealed that it was pre-planned between himself and Chilwell because of defender Kurt Zouma’s love for watching Japanese Anime cartoons.

“We take a lot of flights to away games and me and Chilly [Chilwell] sit behind Kurt Zouma on the plane and he’s always watching Anime cartoons and we always watch it from behind him, so that was the celebration,” Mount told Sky Sports.

“I said to Chilly, if I score or he scores, we do it and obviously I scored today and we did it and it was for Zouma as well.”

Mount also urged his side to keep pushing in every game, so the team can finish as high as possible.

Asked on the three points and his personal performance, Mount added: “[It was a] massive win. Look, every game now is big, we need to get as many points now as we can to keep pushing up the table.

“We want to finish as high as we can, we’ve got the team to do it, we’re on a good run at the moment and we need to keep going, that’s the focus at the moment.

“I just try to give my best, performance-wise, if I’m starting or come off the bench, I try to do my best for the team. I feel like everyone recently has been really together, been putting really good performances together.

“Hopefully that continues and we keep pushing, but I’m happy today to get a goal.”
