Frank Lampard is clearly a fan of Mason Mount.
The former Derby County boss took the 20-year-old on loan to Pride Park last season, and it is fair to say that the England U21 international flourished under the guidance of his temporary boss. The midfielder scored 11 and provided six assists in 44 games for the Championship club.
Now, with Lampard back at Chelsea as the club’s manager, Mount has once again been included in the first-team squad, and even started the first match of the season against Manchester United on Sunday. The Blues face Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday in their next game, and the club’s boss has mentioned his number 19 as a player who deserves a chance.
Whilst he may be a promising player, some Chelsea fans believe that Lampard is becoming obsessed with Mount, and they have taken to Twitter to share their opinions. You can see some of the best comments below.
What’s his obsession with Mount? Okay you rate the player, we get it now??

This obsession with Mount is the start of Lampards demise.
I’m not slating Mount, but he’s a very promising kid, that’s all he is at the moment.
I really hope that Franks lack of managerial experience at any level really tbh, doesn’t cost him (and us).
