Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount believes Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has had a ‘big impact’ in salvaging what was a sinking ship.

As Chelsea’s form collapsed at the end of Frank Lampard’s tenure, little was expected of Chelsea against LaLiga leaders Atletico Madrid but the Blues are now in the Champions League semi-finals after beating Atletico Madrid and Porto.

“[Tuchel] has had a big impact,” Mount told BT Sport when asked about Tuchel’s qualities.

“It’s difficult to come in mid-way through the season but all players, we knew from day one what he wanted and we’ve implemented it.

“We’ve been working hard in training and we show it on game day. We’ve been solid as a team, performing at a high level – hopefully that continues because there are massive games coming up and we need to keep playing at high level.”
