Chelsea Legend – Joe Cole perceives Mason Mount as a future Chelsea great



Mason Mount’s individual display at St.Mary’s Stadium was a performance that stood out in what was an overall sub-par showing by Tuchel’s men.

As Chelsea trailed by a goal, Mount was the deciding factor in maintaining new boss Tuchel’s unbeaten streak. He won a splendid penalty after wrong footing Danny Ings and then placed it comfortably in the bottom right corner.

Mason Mount began the game in lively fashion in the first half but only made a difference in the second half. His showing drew the attention of former Chelsea sensation Joe Cole, who lauded the 22-year-old to become one of Chelsea’s best players in history.

Speaking ahead of the Southampton clash to BT Sport, in quotes picked up by DailyMail, Cole said –

“Mason Mount is one of life’s mysteries how people could criticize him for playing so much. He played so much for Frank not because he’s a nice lad, which he is, but because he’s a top top player.”

Tuchel has included Mount in all of his starting line-ups except on his debut against Wolves. The youngster has gone on to score two goals – clocking 428 minutes in total, under the German. (

“Tuchel’s come in, he was out of the team in the first game, Tuchel’s a clever man and realised this kid is a proper player. He epitomises what Chelsea’s all about,” he said.

The now football pundit went on to say Mount would become one of the greatest Blues players due to his perseverance, authority and maturity –

“Some of the players weren’t standing up (during the early part of the season) and pushing their chest out, his levels stayed the same and tried to drive the team. That’s a massive sign of maturity and that’s why Frank gave him the captain’s armband right at the end. He’ll go on to be one of the top players in Chelsea’s history, he’s that good.”
