‘I love’: Ian Wright was delighted to see 23-year-old Chelsea player looking so angry this week

Ian Wright has explained he loved seeing Chelsea’s Mason Mount looking so angry with England this week.

Mount, 23, didn’t start in either of England’s two Nations League fixtures during the international break.

However, the attacking midfielder came off the bench on Monday night in the 3-3 draw against Germany to make a really positive impact.

The Blues star definitely looked like a man with a point to prove, injecting serious energy and aggression when introduced as a substitute for the final 25 minutes against Germany at Wembley Stadium. He even grabbed himself a fifth international goal, which Joe Cole described as “outstanding”.

Angry Mason Mount

Wright thinks that Chelsea’s Mount looked “vexed” this week with England, something he likes.

“I love the vexed Mason Mount. I like the Mount that came, the vexed Mason Mount!” Wright told The Ringer.

You could totally understand if Mount was a little disappointed right now because it looks like he’s lost his starting position in England.

The way he helped change the game against Germany has given a timely reminder of his ability before the World Cup, though.

Careful of the criticism

If you’re ready to fire criticism and give up on Mount, then do so at your peril.

It took him some time to get going last season, but he still ended up as the club’s player of the year by the end of it.

He’s shown before that he can come back fighting when people doubt him, so it’s going to be interesting to see how he responds in the next month to a slow beginning to this campaign.

There’s so much on the line during the next few months for Mount, which is why we’re backing him to get back to his best.

First of all, his challenge is to convince Graham Potter he’s one of the talismen at Stamford Bridge. After that, the World Cup begins in November.
