A selection of Chelsea supporters have been reacting on social media after the Blues’ official Twitter account shared a claim by Mason Mount, stating that the next goal is to win a major trophy.
Mount has been one of the most regular members of Frank Lampard’s plans this season, starting all 11 of their Premier League games and featuring for the fourth-most minutes among Chelsea’s senior players.
He has also been a regular in the cup competitions, with frequent minutes in the Champions League, and was called on for the final 20 minutes against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup defeat last week.

Falling out of the EFL competition has taken away one route for Chelsea to clinch a trophy, but they stand a strong chance of making it through the Champions League Group Stage and are currently fourth in the Premier League standings on goal difference to third-placed Leicester City.
Mount feels Chelsea already have the togetherness and focus to go on and bring silverware back to Stamford Bridge, where the Blues last celebrated a domestic honour in 2018 after lifting the FA Cup and a European crown this May after beating Arsenal in the Europa League Final.
“We’re so tight as a team, the bond is so good, so we’ve got that focus and togetherness that we need to win trophies,” Mount said. “That’s our next goal: to win a major trophy.

Winning a major is definitely not this season, since Lampard can’t beat any of those top six teams.
