Former Chelsea midfielder Glenn Hoddle has likened Mason Mount to Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne.

According to Hoddle, Mount and Phil Foden are talented midfielders but aren’t the traditional No. 10. He likened the duo to City star De Bruyne but added that they can add to the defensive side of the team.

“They will work hard and do their defensive duties as well,” he told the BBC Sport.

“What De Bruyne, [Jack] Grealish, Foden or Mount can do, which is to consistently create, is the toughest thing to do on a football pitch.

“Goalscoring is difficult too, of course, but if you are a number 10 now you have to score goals as well as make them.

“The pressure is always on them to produce something to change a game.”
