“Top tier” Mason Mount’s set pieces draw massive praise from some Chelsea fans

Mason Mount bagged Chelsea’s first goal this afternoon, but some fans were really taken aback by other features of his game.

Perhaps those Blues fans who didn’t get much of a chance to see him at Derby last season won’t be aware just how menacing his set pieces are. From both corners and free kicks he’s been a real threat today, in a way that we haven’t often seen at Chelsea in recent years. If he does battle his way into our first team, that will be a major reason why. With players like Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger lurking in the box, and set piece is a major threat. Add Mason to that and you have a recipe for goals.
