Let’s talk about mason mount

I don’t think he will win it but the guy is odds on to be our poty and should be in the running for pl poty also. He has been absolutely phenomenal this year. Not a stat padder by any stretch, indeed his strengths are his movement, pressing, driving the team forward and general 90 minutes of play.

But he is chipping in with important goals and would have double digit assists in the league if we had any sort of competent regular striker.

He is in the top 5 for chances created in the league.

He is our best player week in week out and just goes to show how much we miss him when he’s out...cough*5-2*cough.

Also saw a stat the other day, he created the most chances in a World Cup qualifier since Xavi in 2008...it was San Marino, big deal. However the big deal was he done this in just one half.

He is integral to Chelsea and now England and I can’t believe that some opposition fans still don’t rate him. He’s exceptional.

With grealish, foden and mount we have some real quality going forward and will be interesting to see how Southgate implements them going forward.

You can see Spain's limitations as a team now though that they don't have that pace, but they also don't have a prime Busquests, Xavi or Iniesta in that midfield role anymore. Still have quality players, but not to that level.

Unfortunately, as much as I rate Rice, Henderson, Mount, Grealish, Foden etc, they are also not Xavi or Iniesta esque either.

Man City still have a fair bit of pace in the team with Jesus and Sterling. But a lot of it comes down to intelligence of runs into the box which is what I think Foden offers above both Mount and Grealish, that's why he'd be in my team in a 4-3-3 personally.

Yeah like I say it’s not ideal I’d just like to see it tried. Escpailly against teams that drop deep and don’t leave space in behind for runners.

Same posters on this site trying to derail genuine footy conversation. A sad sight

It's been a real breakout year for him. He seems to have a little bit of everything for a modern midfielder - works hard, can pick a pass, can beat a man and can finish. Think it was the Poland game I was watching, whilst I wouldn't describe Mount as quick he has pretty good acceleration - he can get away from defenders really well.

I think he was slightly unfairly dismissed as Lampard's favourite last year and whilst there has been more hype around CHO, Pulisic, Havertz and probably even Abraham; right now Mount is looking the pick of the bunch.

You've got a player there and he'll probably be around for a decade or more.

Nick, I think that a false perception has been created about Mason Mount which many are now struggling to shake off. For a long while when Frank, brought him back with him from Derby, introduced him into our 1st team and was playing him (even when his form dipped which happens to all young players) and all the jokes started about him being Mason's dad, which Frank himself even joked about.

Whereas the truth was (which is only being fully appreciated now that an experienced manager like Tuchel can also see that he is essential to the team) that Frank has to be given credit for seeing that there was a hell of a player in there that was worth persevering with and one with a lot of the same traits that made Frank such a great player. i.e. The pursuit of excellence and a great work ethic and the firm belief that lots of practise, determination and sheer hard work can be the difference between being just a good player and a genuinely great player.

If Messi had scored that goal last night it'd be hailed as something special...which it was, Mason is getting better week on week... absolute shoe in for us and England

Was obvious he was just a good player. The sort of player a lot of managers might not necessarily built a team around, but be name 1 or 2 on the team sheet.

Whatevs, great to see him getting proper recognition now without the Lampard "distraction"

He only got in the team because he's Lampard's son etc
