Former Chelsea left-back Wayne Bridge has hailed Mason Mount and Thiago Silva as Chelsea’s best players this season.
“Mason Mount stands out massively for me. Frank Lampard spoke very highly of him,” Bridge told bettingexpert.com.
“He looks so comfortable on the ball and impresses me in every game he plays with the way he goes past players and is always looking for the ball and a bit of space.
“He’s always trying to create something and has always been the most consistent performer.
“I was absolutely shocked when Tuchel first came in and Mount didn’t play in one of the games. He’s proved a lot of doubters wrong and I think him and Phil Foden have both impressed me loads.
“They’re going to be two massive players not only for England but they could be world stars and the best players in the world.
“At Chelsea, Thiago Silva has been massive for the players around him. He’s got so much experience and helps the defenders around him, like Rudiger and Christensen.
“He has been a great addition to the squad and well done to Lampard for getting him in.”
