Mason Mount has been a very important player for Chelsea this season, and the 22-year-old scored a massive goal in the 2-0 victory over Porto.

With 8 goals to his name this season, Mount is one of Chelsea’s highest scorer so far in the campaign, and he is still expected to bag a few more goals before the end of the campaign.

Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s game against Crystal Palace, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has now backed Mount to keep coming up with the goods. The German believes that the Chelsea academy product has what it takes to hit double figures every season.

Asked whether Mount could become a 20 goal-a-season player for Chelsea, Tuchel replied: “20 would be huge! Then I would maybe not call him a midfielder anymore, but a striker.

“But he has that potential which you cannot learn. You have the composure, you have the technique, you have the precision, you have the feeling to score the goals or you don’t have it.

“I think he can be the type of guy who can produce double figures in every season.

“He’s just in the middle of it right now and I don’t want him to stop now. It’s crucial.”
