Thomas Tuchel claims Mason Mount has ‘struggled’ recently

Chelsea really did have a rollercoaster time in the last couple of weeks going from top of the world to the bottom.

They had one week where they beat both Manchester City and Real Madrid and looked unstoppable, but that was soon followed by defeats to Arsenal in the league, and Leicester City in the FA Cup final at the weekend.

Their season has all of a sudden started to look shaky with top four now becoming a real doubt.

Mason Mount has been excellent all season and a real candidate for player of the year at the club. However, Thomas Tuchel believes he struggled last week to make the usual impact he has been having, and he puts some of that down to the position Tuchel has asked him to play in.

The Blues boss has been speaking about Mount via the Chelsea website, with the latest quotes released over night.

He said:

“I think he struggled a little bit in the game against Arsenal in terms of having his usual high standards and impact on the match. He has played the last few games in a double six role, which I don’t think is the best position for him, but I’m still so happy with Mason.

“In the cup final, perhaps he could have played with a little more composure but don’t forget, if it wasn’t for an incredible save from [Kasper] Schmeichel, then he would have scored an equaliser. It wasn’t to be but Mason is always a dangerous player for us and we should be careful that we don’t over-expect from Mason.

“He is a key player for us in every match, he’s always so decisive and that will not change for the next three matches. He is absolutely key for us.”
