Chelsea’s poor run extended with a defeat to Bournemouth in the Premier League – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter were raging at Mason Mount for his performance.
The Blues were beaten 1-0 at Stamford Bridge by the Cherries and it means they have now lost four of their last five games.
Frank Lampard’s team are still holding onto fourth in the table, but are allowing the chasing group to cut the deficit and could end the weekend just two points above fifth.
Dan Gosling scored an 84th minute winner for visitors Bournemouth to earn them three points and it’s no exaggeration to say Chelsea are enduring a mini crisis right now.
They looked lethargic at times going forward on the ball and it’s extremely worrying times ahead of a trip to face Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham on Sunday.
Some Chelsea fans on social media picked out Mount for his struggling display, as he failed to offer too much when going forward.
The attacking midfielder has completed 90 minutes now in three consecutive league games, but it looks fairly undeserved and it would be no surprise to see him benched once again.
He’s a major talent with a great future and has shown he’s top-flight quality already this season, but the facts are he’s struggling to rediscover his best form and it may be time to give others a chance.
Here are some Chelsea fans on Mount:
Time to admit mount has been poor the last few games #CFC

I hope Mount will be in a bench for quite some times. He doesn’t do enough for the team.

Can we agree that Mason Mount is no better than Ross Barkley and is trash?
