Jamie Redknapp believes that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard took a correct decision to drop Mason Mount against Manchester City.
Chelsea lost 2-1 to City on Saturday, however their exhibition in the challenge earned them credit.
The Blues lost 3 points, even though Chelsea had the ball with them more than their opponents Man City did.
Additionally, all of Chelsea’s midfielders gave a performance during the match, according to Redknapp. And that’s true – the Blues did work very hard.
“Lampard had a big decision to make with Mason Mount and he dropped the 20-year-old to the substitutes’ bench,” Redknapp said.
“It turned out to be the right call. Chelsea’s opener involved all three of their midfielders.
“A little one-two between Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho, a ball over the top for Kante and bang, goal. Chelsea finished with 53.3 per cent possession, too, and that is unheard of against City.”
Although Mason Mount did play in the match, he was added to the game as a substitute player in the late minutes. We’re hoping to see him back in the game for Wednesday’s match and it’s likely he might.
Chelsea can quality for the Champions League group as of now by netting two or more balls in their match, winning against Valencia on Wednesday.
