Frank Lampard’s Rams stunned Jose Mourinho yesterday at Old Trafford in the League Cup, booking a place in the competition’s fourth round following their 8-7 victory on penalties.
The former Chelsea midfielder was heaped with praises after the famous win, however amid the jubilation, one player stood out of it all.
Chelsea’s Mason Mount was firing on all cylinders for the Rams last night and his impressive show-off has won huge admiration from Chelsea fans.
Blues fans took to social media outlet Twitter, to pour accolades on the youngster, who spent a former spell in Vitesse last season.
His sterling campaign at the Dutch professional club at Arnhem, undoubtedly put him in the spotlight. And after yesterday’s clash against a more talented and more experienced Jose Mourinho side, Maso Mount could not be kept in the shadows.
His showboating proved what an excellent talent and remarkable fine piece he would be in Sarri’s squad, once he’s called back into the team.
Some fans would not compare him to Ross Barkley, who joined Chelsea earlier this year.
According to a user, he said: “I’ve watched 10 minutes of this game and I can confirm Mason Mount is better than Barkley.”
With Frank Lampard at the helm in the Championship club, Mason Mount can learn a lot from the midfield legend while he sees out his contract at Derby.
