Paul Scholes has claimed that Chelsea player Mason Mount needs to get better when it comes to his goalscoring. Mount has established himself as a pivotal first-team figure at Stamford Bridge in the past couple of seasons.
The attacking midfielder is one of the stars to come out of the Blues academy, along with teammates such as Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
The 22-year-old is already a nailed-on figure in Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea XI. It’s a similar scenario when he plays for his country with Gareth Southgate’s England.
There is so much positivity around the playmaker, who helped win the Champions League with his boyhood club last season.
However, Manchester United and Premier League legend Paul Scholes is still looking at where Mount can improve. He told Sky Sports’ Overlap channel:
“He [Mount] needs to start scoring goals. I think he’s a great player. He’s got to start winning games, almost in the mould that Frank Lampard did. I see him as that type of player but Frank produced all the time and won games for his team. Mason Mount has to start doing that.”
Scholes is spot on with his assessment of Mount. The young playmaker can really elevate himself to dizzy heights, though, if his goal output increases.
He finished last season with nine goals and nine assists in 54 appearances across all competitions. Surely, he’s got to be looking to better that during this campaign.
