Mason Mount got a hat-trick in Chelsea’s 7-0 win over Norwich City last weekend, as the 22-year-old put in a man of the match display against the Canaries.

Chelsea legend Pat Nevin hailed the performance of Mount and admitted that it’s difficult not to talk about the performance and attitude of the Chelsea academy product.

“It is difficult to pass by any player who scores three goals in a Premier League match and I have no intention of doing so, but Mason Mount was only one of any number of players who were well over 8/10 for the day,” said Nevin.

“He got the hat-trick, the match ball, the man of the match and even a little bit of luck with the penalty re-take going in his favour.

“He did however deserve that little help as his quality and attitude were bordering on perfection from start to finish.”

Mason Mount was one of the five Chelsea players to make the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d’Or award after a stellar season last campaign.
