Chelsea fans on Twitter have advocated against the return of Mason Mount after the midfielder’s disappointing display in the Championship playoff final against Aston Villa at Wembley on Monday.
However, the 20-year old’s excellent season ended in heartbreak as the Rams were defeated 2-1 by Aston Villa to miss out on Premier League promotion with Mount playing a peripheral role.
The playoff final clash featured a number of Chelsea links with John Terry and Tammy Abraham on the Villa side and Fikayo Tomori, Mount, Ashley Cole, Lampard, and Jody Morris representing Derby.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek is out for the foreseeable future due to a ruptured achilles tendon so there could be an opening in the Chelsea midfield, but many Blues supporters feel that Mount is not yet ready after watching his tame display at Wembley.

Mason Mount is good but the hype we give him is too much. He made some decent passes today but he’s not yet Chelsea quality.

Of Mount, Tomori and Abraham the only one i’d only consider to bring back to Chelsea is Tammy.
Tomori was good but I’d rather have Zouma.
Mount was ok but not ready, imo. Unless Kovacic goes back to Madrid. Only then I’d call Mount back.

Tammy was garbage. Lampard just proved he’s not ready. Mount and Tomori took a big step towards their future at Stamford Bridge as stewards. https://t.co/FDs1HBkkdj

State of our fanbase sometimes. Mason Mount has been so average today and proves he is not ready to play games for us next season.

Mount is not even close to RLC, not ready for Chelsea and he can go out on loan again.

So after seeing Mason Mount playing in the championship this season I still don’t see anything special about him, no where near good enough to play for Chelsea.
