The 22-year-old is still proving to be a first team regular at Chelsea under new boss Thomas Tuchel and Mason Mount is proving the doubter’s wrong week in week out. Mount proved he is one of Chelsea most significant player with a high-quality performance vs Athletico Madrid in the Champions League. However, Thomas Tuchel team will take on top four rival Liverpool on Thursday night ahead of the double game week finale in the Premier League. Can Mason Mount inspire the blues to victory?

The young midfielder was a hard-working presence in midfield for Thomas Tuchel’s side vs Athletico Madrid. The 22-year-old was the star man on the biggest stage, against the leaders of La Liga: 2 key passes, 3/5 successful dribbles,6 crosses,1 big chance created,6/10 ground duels won and 2 tackles. He belongs at this level for sure if maintains high level performances on a weekly basis.

Mount was a regular starter under previous manager Frank Lampard at Chelsea, with the pair’s relationship dating back to their season with Derby County in the Championship. The playmaker was the first name on Lampard’s team sheet for the first half of the campaign, but speculation over his continued presence in the starting side grew when he was benched for Tuchel’s first game in charge against Wolves in January.

However, he has since featured heavily in each of his side’s last six Premier League outings, highlighting his role as an asset for the west London club

The blues faced Southampton on the south coast in the Premier League and the 22-year-old earned and scored Chelsea’s penalty in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Southampton and has what it takes to become a ‘top player’ for the Premier League club, according to Graeme Souness. He told The Times: “Mason Mount constantly gets picked in that Chelsea team and already it appears that Thomas Tuchel, their new manager, likes him as well, despite the experienced squad they have. ‘When results weren’t what Frank Lampard wanted and he had the temptation to revert back to experience, he stuck with the youngster and that says a great deal”.

it is almost like even a cursory examination of his career would have shown that Tuchel has been happy to play young players even when he has had a squad full of expensive superstars. Maybe the best thing that young players can have is a really, good coach, not just someone who has known them for a while. This idea that Mason Mount’s career would stall as soon as he was not protected by Lampard always felt a bit offensive to Mason Mount.

Mason Mount gets better and better with each passing game, he so energetic and confident on the ball. Mason Mount is key he has the potential to be a real driving force. The question is how to best utilise him. So far, we have seen him play mostly off his centre forward, a kind of 10 drifting between half spaces.

Mount was unable to inspire Chelsea to victory over United on Sunday afternoon but was one of their best performers, moving the ball quickly and with efficiency to carry their attacking threat.

He found himself with a great chance to break the deadlock during the second half after waltzing into the area with a show of quick feet, but his effort from a tricky angle failed to trouble visiting goalkeeper David de Gea.

Mount has provided ten goal contributions in the Premier League so far this season, having started in all but three of Chelsea’s domestic outings since the beginning of the campaign.

He has been deployed in a more advanced role under Tuchel since Lampard’s departure, with the new Blues boss a firm believer that he can shape the playmaker into a world-class talent during his time in the capital.

Tuchel will be hoping that Mount can maintain his form between now and the end of the campaign, with Chelsea facing a tough battle to secure Champions League qualification for next season. 

The Blues currently occupy fifth place in the Premier League table, a single point behind West Ham United in fourth with just 12 games remaining.
