Mason Mount reveals the exact game plan that he and Tammy Abraham developed and carried out in order to secure their win against Aston Villa on Wednesday.
Mount scored the winning goal that beat Aston Villa, along with the opening goal shot by striker Tammy Abraham. But it wasn’t just a fluke. In fact, the strategy for the win was planned beforehand.
‘It fell to me and me and Tammy spoke about that, that he would set me if he didn’t have space,’ Mount disclosed after the match.
‘We knew the performance against West Ham wasn’t good enough, we knew we had to win more matches at home and be dominant.
‘We did that, won more tackles and second balls, and we could have scored more goals.’
Chelsea win over Aston Villa bumped them up to the fourth place in the Premier League. Lampard was ecstatic about their win and he was relieved about Chelsea’s performance as opposed to last week’s defeat to West Ham.
‘I thought we were great today. I’m pleased because that was us again, we had a blip against West Ham and today we were back,’ said the Chelsea manager.
‘Our character at half-time was important and we carried off where we left off. The disappointment of the day is we didn’t score two or three.
‘Villa are stubborn, have picked up results on the road and you can see why. They have good players and are well organised.’
