Thomas Tuchel recently hailed Mason Mount as the complete package, and he has again sang the praises of the young midfielder ahead of facing Manchester City.

Mount has been getting rave reviews since under Frank Lampard, but it seems his game has even gone up a ladder under Thomas Tuchel.

Manchester City youngster Phil Foden is another young English talent who’s doing well, and Tuchel hailed the duo ahead of the game at the Etihad.

“They are the outstanding examples at the moment of how good young players can be, and how good young players from England can be,” the Blues boss said.

“I cannot speak for Phil Foden because he’s not my player, but you see clearly the talent and desire and ability to decide any game at any level. So he’s a huge player and he gives me the impression that he is the same nice guy, the same clear character, like Mason.

“I have spoken about Mason many times. He’s outstanding and he has the full package in terms of mentality, of being humble, of work ethic and of course talent. They are absolutely reliable on the highest level and most importantly they are hungry and humble and they behave exactly how you want players to behave at this age.

“They want to learn, they want to get better and it seems like they don’t feel the pressure, which is pretty amazing.”
