“Absolute filth” – Mason Mount’s magic moment hailed by adoring fans on social media

It’s 1-0 to Chelsea at half time in the Champions League quarter final, and we can put that lead down to one man – Mason Mount.

The whole front 3 – including Mount – had really struggled early on, and the Blues were really finding it hard to progress the ball out of their own third.

When they did work the ball to the edge of the box, Porto were settled and it looked a tough task to break them down – until a sublime turn from Mount carved open a path directly to goal. “Absolute filth”, as one on Twitter put it.

His latest superb moment generated another wave of praise on social media. Those doubters we hear so much about have gone very quiet now – and this might just be the start for young Mason. There’s no telling how far he could go.
