Leeds United’s Patrick Bamford has revealed that he owns Chelsea duo Romelu Lukaku and Mason Mount on the popular Premier League fantasy football game this season.
Bamford previously had five years on the books at Stamford Bridge earlier in his career, albeit most of that time was spent out on loan.
The 28-year-old Leeds striker has shown loyalty to his former club, though, by including two Chelsea men in his fantasy squad.
First of all, he’s picked popular centre-forward Lukaku in his team. The 28-year-old has four goals in four games across all competitions since he was re-signed by Chelsea in the summer, so is a popular selection.
Secondly, he’s included 22-year-old England teammate Mount. The attacking midfielder was away on international duty with Bamford during the most recent break.
Bamford has shared the details of his team for a game that has over eight million players.
Are Lukaku and Mount nailed on starters for Chelsea?
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has so much talent within his squad that he can rotate freely if he wants, but there are a few names that will surely start every Premier League game.
Aside from goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, there are some outfield players that fall into that category.
There will be outrage from Blues supporters if new fan favourite Lukaku drops down to the bench for a league match this campaign. It feels like everything that happens in the final third is built around him.
Meanwhile, Mount has been an ever-present for two years since his first-team breakthrough at the Bridge. However, his position may not be as fixed as Lukaku.
Mount will need to recapture his very best form to make sure he’s in the XI each week because he’s got competition from teammates Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
