Mason Mount said his first Blues hat-trick is a “massive moment” as he look forward to score more goals, while Thomas Tuchel believes Mount will feel “lighter” after being back to scoring sheet for the season.
He said, “I just got told Gareth Southgate was watching. It’s brilliant for me and obviously to get my first goals of the season and an assist, it was a good day”.
“I thought the last one might be offside. It was my luck today, but it’s also about the team. We spoke before about being at it from the beginning, we did that today. Players came in in the absence of other players. We were on it the entire game but we never dropped our standards and kept going”.
Mount was outstanding but he was not the only Chelsea player that played well. Callum Hudson-Odoi continued his recent revival with a clinically-taken strike in the first half while Reece James and Ben Chilwell, scorers of the third and fourth goals respectively, demonstrated their offensive qualities too.
