Thomas Tuchel’s unbeaten start to his managerial reign at Chelsea has quickly made him well-liked at Stamford Bridge – and he’s become even more popular with some Blues fans after they spotted what he did at full-time against Liverpool.
Chelsea moved into fourth in the Premier League table with a vital 1-0 away victory on Thursday night against Liverpool at Anfield.
It was in-form attacker Mason Mount who scored the winning goal, as he ghosted infield and fired in a superb low finish.
The 22-year-old is thriving in a more advanced position under the new manager, where he’s operating as a number 10 and is encouraged to get forward.
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media love a clip from last night’s full-time whistle against Liverpool that has surfaced.
It shows Blues boss Tuchel lifting Mount in the air in celebration on the pitch.
Ex-Chelsea boss Frank Lampard used England international Mount more than any other player during his time in charge and was often accused of favouritism.
Fortunately, a new manager’s arrival is showing that the academy graduate is playing on merit and what’s so impressive is aged 22 he looks one of the outstanding players.
Here are some Chelsea fans reacting to the Tuchel-Mount celebration:
