Chelsea fans react as Mason Mount is included on final Golden Boy shortlist

What a season it has been so far for Mason Mount.

The 20-year-old had not made an appearance for Chelsea before the start of this current campaign, but he is now one of the first names on manager Frank Lampard’s teamsheet, having been included in the starting XI in all eight of the Premier League games this season.

During his time on the pitch, he has managed to score four goals and was also recently given his first-ever start in an England shirt against the Czech Republic in Prague last Friday.
