Thomas Tuchel has praised the impact and scope of Mason Mount at Chelsea.
The Stamford Bridge youth product was a firm favorite under Frank Lampard and seems likely that it will continue under Tuchel as well.
“I told him he could be more decisive and dangerous in the last 20 metres,” Tuchel told chelseafc.com.
“You can be very sure that Mase leaves his heart on the pitch for Chelsea and this is what we need so I was just happy that we won. He’s an absolute team player, he’s still young and there’s still room to improve so I told him not to worry. I was happy with his performance.”
“We played with Mason coming from a number nine and dropping into a number 10 position because we wanted to have two wide strikers and find Mason in the spaces between the lines,” Tuchel continued.
“He did good but in the end if you have to suffer and defend then I told the team that it’s a good feeling. When things get complicated or things are not too easy with the second and third goals then we have to experience moments where we finish a game like this.
“You have to experience it because it’s not enough for the coach just to tell you and this is what we did.”
