Chelsea dominated the game from start to finish against Leeds United, as goals from Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic and Romelu Lukaku sealed a 3-0 win for Chelsea away at Elland Road.

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness was impressed with the performance of Mason Mount and Reece James, and hailed the duo as the best on the night.

“What a boy this is. I think he’s top-class,” Sky Sports pundit Souness said of Mount.

“I remember Chelsea fans doubting him a couple of years ago, there’s nothing to doubt.

“He’s energetic, he’s a workaholic, he’s got great skill, an eye for a pass.

“He’s just a top player at such a young age. Mason Mount and Reece James, two young lads, were the two best players on the pitch tonight.”
