Mason Mount sums up his debut season with Chelsea

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has said that he is overall delighted with his debut season in the club’s colours. The 21-year-old was handed the chance to make the breakthrough by Frank Lampard this term after a few seasons on loan with Vitesse and Derby County. He has been a regular in the number 10 role and has fared decently with six goals and four assists to his name.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Mount said that he has grown as a player during his maiden season with the Blues’ senior squad. He added that he has learns plenty from the senior players in the team and is pleased with his goalscoring contributions, he told: “There’s been ups and downs, but the main thing for me coming out of this season is how much I’ve learnt and grown as a player, on and off the pitch. Also how much I’ve learnt playing against some of the best players in the world. It’s my first season in the Premier League and, as a boy, I dreamt of playing in the Premier League. For me to have my first season, make loads of debuts and score some goals has meant so much to me.”

Mount has received criticism from some fans due to the lack of consistency but he has nonetheless remained a regular under Lampard and has made 41 appearances across all competitions. He has not had much competition for places during the current campaign but things could change next term with the club.
The west Londoners have already landed the signature of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and they are currently on the verge of landing Timo Werner from RB Leipzig. Both players are ideally suited to playing behind the main striker and Mount’s gametime could be restricted next season unless he can make better impact in the final third.
