Chelsea beat dirty Leeds United 3-0 in their own backyard last night to send them deep into relegation trouble.
The Blues needed a big performance and a big result and they got it over their historical rivals. What’s better is that we have now really put Leeds in some trouble as they battle to stay in the league.
Mason Mount scored the opening goal and assisted the second to get Chelsea well on their way to victory, and he was also then later named man of the match by Sky Sports.
It was vintage Mount, and his former Chelsea and Derby boss Frank Lampard was very happy that he was! Lampard is now managing Everton of course, who are in the same relegation battle as Leeds, and the result helped him immensely.
As you can see below, Lampard says he’ll send Mount a message of thanks!
"I'll send him a message of thanks!" 📱
