Graham Potter makes Mason Mount claim Chelsea fans will love

Graham Potter has been full of praise for Chelsea’s Mason Mount.


Chelsea faced off with Wolves on Saturday and came away with a dominant 3-0 win.

Mount provided assists for two of the three goals against the managerless Wolves.

Said assists were Mount’s first Premier League goal contributions of the campaign, which is fairly poor by his standards.

However, speaking after the game, Graham Potter was full of praise for Mount and eager not to put a celling on the Englishman:

“Yeah, I really liked his performance,” Potter told reporters.

“I thought he linked the game well, him and Christian [Pulisic] were a threat down that left side, he made lots of runs in behind, sacrificed himself for the team, worked hard when we didn’t have the ball, so it was a really good performance by him.

“I do not doubt Mason Mount at all. It’s just like anything, sometimes the team doesn’t function as well and so the individuals don’t function as well … any young player knows football is a bit up and down, you have moments when it doesn’t go your way and it’s about what you can learn from that.

“He’s got that character, that personality, to continue to develop. He’s a delight to work with.

“I never like to put ceilings on players. I try to help them enjoy their football, I think if the team is playing well it helps individuals in the team, and that’s the job, that’s what we have to do.

“It gets more challenging with bigger squads and more players because there’s less time on the training pitch [to do one-on-one work]. But we have to work with what we have and so far the boys have been brilliant.”
