Jamie Carragher suggests Mount to mimic John Terry

Mason Mount can emulate John Terry at Chelsea.

Mount has made himself a key player for the Blues and England National Team scoring 11 goals and making six assists in 56 appearances in all competitions this season.

The 22-year old was a key figure under former manager Frank Lampard and remained the same under new manager Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge.

Jamie Carragher believes Mount can play at the highest level for both club and country.

‘Everything Mount has done in the last two years confirms that first impression,’ Carragher told Telegraph Sport.

‘This kid can be the symbol of Chelsea for the next 10 years in the same way as John Terry in his prime.’

Carragher added: ‘Seeing Mount and [Manchester City star Phil] Foden emerge at the same time reminds me of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard’s breakthrough.

‘Arguments still continue as to whether both should have been in the same England team, especially with Paul Scholes and David Beckham making a multi-talented midfield.

‘England will not make the same mistake with Mount and Foden, which underlines how our attitudes and culture are evolving for the better.

‘Southgate has already proven himself more flexible switching between three and four at the back, inclined to make the system suit the talent, not insist the talent is compromised to suit a predetermined system.

‘If the European championships were starting this weekend, on the basis of form Mount and Foden would deservedly be in the starting line-up with Harry Kane.’
