Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is expecting a tough game against Southampton, as the Blues play host to the Saints on Saturday afternoon.

Southampton have been a difficult team for Chelsea in recent years, and Mount is expecting a good result from his team.

“It’s going to be a very tough game,” he said.

“They’ve done very well at Stamford Bridge the last couple of years. They are a team who are very tough to play against and make it very hard. They’re aggressive, they want to get stuck in, they want to tackle.

“It’s just another game for me. Maybe!”

Speaking on the positives ahead of the game, Mount is glad that the team is close to the top of the league.

“If you look at the table, we are up there, but if we look at the performances we have put in, and what we could have done better, we would probably say there is so much more we can give,” he said ahead of today’s game.

“That is a positive because of where we are in the league. We know we can give more. That’s where we are at, and we are working each day to keep getting better and better and better.”
