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.

And now, his form has been recognised by Italian outlet Tuttosport, who give out the prestigious Golden Boy award each year.
The midfielder has been included on the final shortlist of 20, and is in with a chance of winning alongside the likes of Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt and Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
