Mason Mount admits to being conscious of the demands as a Chelsea player, being an academy graduate of the club’s academy.
The 21-year-old midfielder is raring to equal his manager, Frank Lampard’s records as he aims at winning titles and scoring goals as a midfielder.
He also worked with Lampard during his loan spell at Derby, and found his breakthrough with Chelsea this season, going on to score six goals in the current Premier League campaign.
Lampard, during his playing time was dominant and highly praised in his position, winning three Premier League titles and a Champions League title with the Blues.
However, Mount admits he needed to learn and improve on his qualities as he finds his manager to be his mentor.
Mount speaking on Chelsea’s official website aims to achieve same heights as Lampard, he said: “I’m very lucky to have worked with Lampard at both Derby and then at Chelsea this season.
“The manager has been great with me. He’s always giving me little bits of advice and he’s just been encouraging me to keep learning and to keep growing as a player.
“I’ve loved every minute of this season so far and hopefully we can come back and end it on a high now.
“I’d love to add more goals to my game, like Frank did when he played for Chelsea. If I could make even half of his goals then I’d be very happy! He was so dominant as a goalscoring midfielder. I’d also like to be successful like him in terms of trophies won.
Mount also shares ambitions of young players and wishes to win silverware with Chelsea, “As young players coming through, you dream of lifting silverware and that’s no different to this team. We want to win trophies and having seen the Chelsea team when Lampard was playing, that’s something we can aspire to.”
The Blues will travel away to Aston Villa once the league resumes as they hope to securing a place in the top four as well as conclude the season with the FA Cup title. Lampard’s side are almost out of the Champions League after a humiliating defeat in a 0-3 home loss to Bayern Munich in the first leg of the round of 16 stage at the Stamford Bridge.
