Although midfielder Mason Mount did not get his name on the scoresheet in England’s 7-0 mauling of Montenegro at Wembley on Thursday night, these Chelsea fans have been responding to the playmaker’s performance in just his fifth international appearance after he composed a tweet.

Mount, 20, started in midfield for Gareth Southgate’s side, putting in an assured display before being substituted on 70 minutes for Joe Gomez. Throughout his time on the pitch, he had one shot and made a key pass too.
Such a performance from a Chelsea academy graduate is always likely to be received well by the club’s fanbase, but just three months into his breakthrough season in the Premier League, Mount is playing with a sense of maturity well beyond his 20 years of age, growing his valuation to £31.5m.
Having started in all 12 of the Blues’ league games so far this season, Mount’s development is a hugely positive aspect of an already promising season for the west London side, and these supporters were quick to praise his performance following a tweet from the club after the game.
Here are some of the best reactions to Mount’s display against Montenegro.
Well played Mason
