We’ve already written about how the changes in formation that Thomas Tuchel made in the game against Tottenham helped the wingers, but it also allowed Mason Mount to return to form.
He was feeling himself, and he showed exactly how much when he drilled a wicked low cross field pass, whipping the ball such that it reverse swung into the path of Callum Hudson-Odoi as he bust down the left.
He later got an assist with a similar perfect hit, that time onto Thiago Silva’s forehead.
You can see the pass in the clip embedded here:
