Mason Mount is now not only finally being accepted and recognised as a top class player by his own clubs fanbase, he is now being recognised by the world wide footballing community and getting the plaudits he deserves.

Oddly, a very small section of online Chelsea fans gave Mount a lot of stick and abuse last season and even this season, some of them didn’t rate him or harshly overly criticised him. However, most of us fans knew the player we had on our hands, and he has done even more to prove that by assisting the goal to see him and Chelsea become European Champions over the weekend – perfect response to the haters.

As well as this, he has now been nominated for both the Premier League player of the season this year, but also the Premier League young player of the season.

That really is quite some achievement to add to his Champions League winners medal from Saturday!
