Some Chelsea fans have shown huge love for their youngster Mason Mount after spotting what he did last night in the win over Atletico Madrid.

The Blues beat Spanish league leaders Atletico 1-0 in the away leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.

It took something special to find a breakthrough against the stubborn opposition, with French centre-forward Olivier Giroud netting a spectacular bicycle kick midway through the second half.

Giroud now has six goals in the Champions League this campaign and proved what an instinctive finisher he is.

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media though picked up on what teammate Mount did just before the ball hit the net. 

Mount, 22, has been pictured celebrating with his arms in the air before the ball actually ended up in the goal.

There are plenty of Blues fans who feel it shows the attacking midfielder is a big Chelsea supporter, something which is the case after his development through the academy at Cobham.

The England international is one of a crop of academy players now enjoying first-team football at Stamford Bridge, but he’s now recognised as a key figure that has cemented a permanent position in Thomas Tuchel’s XI.

Here are some Chelsea fans discussing Mount’s premature celebration:
