“Exceptional” Mason Mount showered with praise from some Chelsea fans after breaking bad run

Mason Mount has not played well in Chelsea’s recent bad run, there’s no denying it.

It’s not just down to him – when the team is playing poorly it’s hard for a player in that role to do well. Like the rest of the young team, he looked tired and lacking the sparkle and energy that made him so effective at times in the Autumn.

Yesterday in our win against Spurs he was back to his best however, buzzing around and harrying the opposition defenders across the width of the pitch.

Playing out wide in the 343 suited him, allowing him to flit into wide positions to find space but also defend more narrowly with Cesar Azpilicueta outside him as a wing back on the right.

Social media was full of well deserved praise for the England midfielder after he stepped things up and made the difference against our old rivals.
