We love when Chelsea play on BT Sport, because it means we get Joe Cole on coverage. He’s so good he almost makes up for Jake Humphery.
Today the former Chelsea winger was asked about Mason Mount, and he could barely contain himself in his praise for the youngster. Simon Johnson of the Athletic picked up his exact words on the matter:

“He will go on to be one of the top players in Chelsea’s history,” Cole raved of the young midfielder.
There’s not much room for backtracking there, and frankly we agree. It’s easy to forget how close Mount came to missing the boat, and how far he’s come in just a year and a bit as a starter. It already feels like he’s been a fixture in the team for a decade, and that tells you everything you need to know about his quality.
We thrilled to see how far he can go just this season, let alone over the course of the next ten years.
