“World class” – Football world starts to admit that Mason Mount is incredible

It’s an odd weekend in the Premier League – there’s still a lot to play for, but in comparison to the Super League madness of last week and the ongoing Champions League semi finals, it all seem a little quiet.

Plenty of fans have tuned in to watch Chelsea’s game against Fulham this afternoon though, and one man who has clearly caught their eye is Mason Mount. Blues fans have known his quality for almost literally ten years now, but fans of other teams are only now realising the depth of his talent.

He got a superb assist for Kai Havertz’ goal in the first half, and that was the trigger for lots of people to admit that he might just be the real deal. They called him “world class” on Twitter – would anyone disagree? Playing in a deeper role today, he looked as good as ever.
