'So influential playing deeper': Some Chelsea fans loved their player's position in Spurs win
Chelsea beat Tottenham in comfortable fashion 2-0 last night in the cup – and some Blues fans on Twitter loved the position that Mason Mount was used in.
The Blues took a strong aggregate lead in the two-legged semi-final tie in the Carabao Cup.
Thomas Tuchel’s side travel to Spurs next week for the second leg as favourites and thoroughly deserved the win during Wednesday night’s match.
With several defenders injured, Tuchel decided to move away from his usual 3-4-3 formation and try a back four.
They didn’t have long to work on a new system, so the way the Blues dominated the contest for 90 minutes against Spurs was really impressive.
It looks like one foot in the final of the Carabao Cup, but will need to get the job done next Wednesday.
Chelsea fans impressed by Mount
A selection of Blues supporters on social media absolutely loved the role Mount played last night after he started in the cup victory.
The 22-year-old England international is an ever-present in Tuchel’s XI and once again he looked very sharp against Spurs.
A lot of his time under Tuchel has been spent higher up the pitch in more attacking roles, but there was definitely a freedom yesterday to come deeper into a number eight midfield position. Also, he kept popping up on the left flank trying to link up with teammate Kai Havertz.
It looked quite interchangeable at times for Mount, who’s got the intelligence to play various roles, and some Chelsea fans loved watching him impact the game in deeper areas against Spurs.
