‘Hopefully’: Mason Mount shares what he wants to see in his next Chelsea game after starring in Milan
Mason Mount has told BT Sport that he is hopeful he can open his goalscoring account in his next Chelsea game.
The England international was the star of the show in Milan last night, picking up player of the match despite only featuring for 45 minutes.
Mount picked up a brilliant assist for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to double the Blues advantage, as they went on to win 2-0 at the San Siro.
He also burst through the Serie A winning defence to win the penalty which Jorginho converted, seeing crucial player Fikayo Tomori sent off in the process.
Contributions to goals had evaded Mount’s game for the first few weeks of the season, with him not avoiding criticism in the media.
However, it is now three assists in two games for the Englishman, who is looking close to his best.
Mount wants a goal
He has now claimed that he wants to add goals to his season, seemingly not content with player of the match displays.
He said: “I feel good, I’m enjoying it and we’re playing well and scoring goals. That’s the most important thing. Hopefully next I get a goal because it’s been coming, I just haven’t finished it off yet, but I’ll take the assists.”
It took Mount until the 23rd of October last season for him to get underway for goals.
In that game, he notched up a hat-trick, kick-starting his campaign that would end up being the most prolific of his Chelsea career so far.
He will be hoping for a similar format this season, although a return to his best form only a month removed from the World Cup in Qatar will do him no harm.
Gareth Southgate is likely to rely on the 23-year-old at the tournament, and will be delighted that he is regaining form this close to the tournament.
