Mason Mount: Chelsea captain in the making

Since the Lampard managerial era at Chelsea, Mason Mount has developed into one of the first names on match day team sheet. Frank Lampard, during his first managerial stint at Derby County, saw Mason Mount as one of the best youngsters in the country.

Joining Chelsea, Lampard was given a job of developing a team which can qualify for the next year’s Champions league. And with the transfer ban in place, Lampard had to make use of the academy products who were ready to make an impact in Chelsea’s first team.

Mason Mount was one of the first names that came to mind at that point who could have a real go in the first team under Frank Lampard. That’s exactly what happened. And to be fair he didn’t disappoint, making an instant impact in Lampard’s Chelsea team. So much so that he was being regarded as being favored by Lampard by the critics.

Mason Mount has proved his critics wrong again and again even after Frank Lampard left the club and Thomas Tuchel was made Chelsea’s new coach. Once again he was one of the first names in Tuchel’s starting eleven. Which further proved the talent and desire of Chelsea’s rising star to be the best. Either creating chances in the final third or pressing the opposition and winning the ball back in crucial areas of the pitch, Mason Mount has developed all these abilities within a short period of time.

According to many fans and pundits, Mount doesn’t get enough praise that he deserves. Joe Cole, former Chelsea player, said in an interview:

No he doesn't get the plaudits he deserves. He does from within the game. He's becoming one of the outstanding players in the country. There is a swell of unusual fans that don't get it. It must be a tribal thing. I'm yet to meet an ex-player or coach that has a bad word to say about him.

Joe Cole

I just don't get it, there are fans out there that don't rate Mount. Why?. He's such a versatile player, he takes on information. He's a wonderful player, I don't get the doubters.

After cementing his place in Chelsea’s starting eleven, Mason Mount is now widely considered as the next Chelsea captain and a leader in Chelsea and England’s national team. He seems to be a natural replacement of Cesar Azpilicueta as Chelsea’s captain.

Players now look up to Mason Mount as the center of Chelsea success and especially the academy players who dream of playing for Chelsea’s first team have a role model after John Terry to look up to.
