Mason Mount rate himself seven out of 10 this season
There is more to Mason Mount’s game than goals from midfield. The Chelsea midfielder brings assists, moves intelligently, and is a relentless presser off the ball. Frank Lampard loves his attitude and always tries to find room for him in the team. Yet when Mount is asked to rate his first Premier League season out of 10, his mind is drawn to one area.
The question has put Mount on the spot. It is an awkward one to answer for someone uncomfortable bigging himself up, but there is no way out. “It’s difficult,” he says, speaking on Zoom from his home. “But because I have got seven goals I will give myself seven out of 10. I’m a big self-critic and I know there is room for improvement.”
