Mason Mount put in a top performance for Chelsea on Wednesday, as the Blues defeated Watford 2-1 away from home at the Vicarage Road.

It wasn’t an easy game for Chelsea, as the Hornets pressed hard and made life difficult for Chelsea all through the game.

However, Mount stood out for Chelsea and scored the opening goal for the team and played a vital role in Hakim Ziyech’s winner. He was generally good in every aspect.

Former Liverpool and Fulham midfielder Danny Murphy hailed Mount’s performance after the game and said he ‘never disappoints’.

Analysing the game on BBC’s Match of the Day, Murphy said: “Mount never does [disappoint]. He’s got that quality and that desire to keep getting into dangerous areas.

“They’ve got lots of quality players but it was great to see him back. You know what you get from him.

“You get a great touch, great technique and that willingness to get into areas. He’s always a threat.

“Chelsea were poor first half but they only needed one or two chances. Mount very rarely makes the wrong decision.

“He was pivotal in the winner for Ziyech too. He’s actually been the top scorer since Tuchel came in and he’ll be delighted to have him back.”
