Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has responded to Blues favourite Cesc Fabregas on Twitter, after the latter posted a message to him during the win over Rennes on Tuesday evening. 

Frank Lampard’s side secured their spot in the Champions League last-16 by winning away to French club Rennes in the group stages. 

Callum Hudson-Odoi’s first-half goal and Olivier Giroud’s 91st minute header was enough to earn the vital three points, which will give the manager an opportunity to rotate his squad during the final two group matches.

Mount was once again included in the Chelsea starting XI in a central midfield position, which is an area of the pitch he’s now starting to make his own and he’s finding top form.

The 21-year-old produced a remarkable assist for Hudson-Odoi’s goal, as he hit a lofted through ball from inside his own half to loop over the defenders into his teammate’s path.

Monaco midfielder Fabregas, who was a two-time Premier League title winner with Chelsea, sent a message on Twitter to Mount after his assist.

Mount, who responded on social media, will surely receiving praise from a Chelsea icon that was so successful at Stamford Bridge and is regarded as one of the best midfield playmakers of the Premier League era.
