Mason Mount has made a brilliant start to life in the Chelsea first-team this season – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have made a comparison between him and ex-Blues playmaker Oscar.

Mount has been drafted into the senior squad for the 2019/20 season at Stamford Bridge and his start couldn’t have gone much better.

The attacking midfielder has four goals and one assist in 11 games across all competitions, with all of his strikes coming in the Premier League so far.

He’s one of several academy graduates to break into the senior squad under current boss Frank Lampard and he built up a relationship with him last year at Derby County in the Championship.

The 20-year-old has nailed down his spot in the Chelsea XI and has also linked up with Gareth Southgate’s England squad during the current international break.

Mount has shown his versatility this campaign by doing a decent role on the left flank when required, where his strong work-rate and ability to drift inside has been useful.

But he was deployed in a more central number 10 role behind striker Tammy Abraham at the weekend and he had a great display in the 4-1 away win at Southampton in his preferred position.

A selection of Blues supporters have made the comparison between him and former player Oscar.

Brazilian Oscar played 203 games during his Chelsea career, scoring an impressive 38 goals and supplying 37 assists in return.

The 28-year-old departed in 2017 to join current Chinese club Shanghai SIPG and he is fondly remerged for his five-year spell in West London, as he won two Premier League titles, one Europa League and a League Cup.

He’s a creative playmaker renowned for his high energy and trickery around the edge of the box, which is why the Mount comparisons make sense and have come about on social media from fans.

But it’s the beginning of Mount’s career in the top-flight and he doesn’t need any extra pressure on his young shoulders right now.

He’s still developing into his role as an attacking midfielder, but what’s clear is that he’s a calm finisher under pressure and will only keep improving.
