Chelsea star singled out for praise despite West Ham loss

Chelsea star singled out for praise despite West Ham loss

West Ham down Chelsea

Chelsea faced a short trip to West Ham on Saturday afternoon for a Premier League clash.

With Liverpool and Manchester City hot on their heels, Chelsea could not afford to drop points this weekend.

And, when Thiago Silva fired a dominant Chelsea into the lead after 28 minutes, they did not look as though they would.

Manuel Lanzini did put West Ham back on level terms after 40 minutes, but Mason Mount then scored a stunning goal to regain the Blues’ lead.

The usually solid Chelsea, though, then shipped their second goal of the day at the hands of Jarrod Bowen.

Then, 86 minutes in Arthur Masuaku netted the winner for West Ham, scoring a pretty bizarre goal that wrong-footed Mendy.

Chelsea star praised

On the whole, Chelsea struggled to be close to their best against West Ham. Edouard Mendy and Jorginho had questionable games, Kai Havertz was fairly quiet all game and Reece James was not at his scintillating best.

Perhaps the only two Chelsea players who can really hold their head up high following the game are Mason Mount and Thiago Silva.

Silva would score one and perform a goal-saving clearance in the first 45, whilst Mount was arguably Chelsea’s Man of the Match on the day.

The Englishman was a cut above his peers today,  adding some much-needed energy and creativity to Chelsea.

And now, despite Chelsea not winning on the day, fans have taken to social media to praise Mount, with just some of the reaction shown below:
