Mason Mount posted his delight on Twitter after Chelsea secured a 2-1 victory over Barcelona on Tuesday in a pre-season fixture.
The Blues managed to get the better of the Spanish giants, with Tammy Abraham and Ross Barkley on the scoresheet for the Premier league team.
Frank Lampard’s side have now completed their trip in Japan and will return home to face Reading at the weekend.
Mount has managed to made inroads to the first-team at Stamford Bridge already during pre-season and looks like he could be pushing for a spot in the senior team during the new season.
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder started in the number 10 role against Barcelona and showed some intelligent touches in the final third.
He posted on social media after the Barcelona win and has received a response from ex-Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
Keep it up lad 💪🏻

Fabregas spent five brilliant years at Chelsea and he’s shown his support for rising talent Mount.
Fabregas, 32, is currently plying his trade at Monaco, but he won five major pieces of silverware during his spell with the Blues.
The central midfielder was an extremely popular player in West London and he’s left a creative void in the team that needs filling.
Mount will have a brilliant career if he can achieve half of what Fabregas has, but it does seem he’s primed for a key role during the next year.
He’s clearly admired by Lampard after playing under him on loan at Derby County last season and the pair will now hope to replicate that in the top-flight.
Mount can certainly add goals from midfield and provide quality from set-pieces, while Blues fans are desperate to see him succeed after coming through the academy.
