Mason Mount’s brilliant performances in Tuesday’s Chelsea 2-1 victory over Ligue 1 side Rennes, show why the 21-year-old continued to remain a key player under Frank Lampard.
Mount has been a revelation for the west London club under Frank Lampard, despite the arrival of stars such as Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz in the recent transfer window.
An fine display from the England international showing why he has become an indispensable member of Frank Lampard’s side with outstanding performances in recent games.
Against Newcastle United last weekend, Mason was selected to started the matches alongside N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic at the hearts of the Chelsea midfield park, and he was used the chances to impressed Frank Lampard as he played key role in Blues first goal against The Magpies.
It was his cross that forced Fernandez into a goalscoring mistake, while his excellently weighted through-balls to Timo Werner should have yielded more.
Before his brilliant performances against Rennes on Tuesday evening, Mount has created the most chances for Chelsea coming in with 15 chances whilst Hakim Ziyech 11 and Ben Chilwell with 10 so far this term.

And on Tuesday evening, the 21-year-old’s sparking form continue as he played a key role to setting up Frank Lampard’s side first goal against Ligue 1 side.
Won the ball on the edge of the Chelsea box before setting Callum Hudson-Odoi through on goal with a magical pass. Could have had a goal of his soon after if not for a fine save from the Rennes stopper Alfred Gomis. Worked immensely hard off the ball before being given a well-earned rest in the 68th minute.
