Chelsea fans have been airing their opinions about Mason Mount on Twitter and have expressed their belief he has what it takes to be a Stamford Bridge legend.

Following the question posed, by @TheBlues__, to supporters on what they thought of the 20-year-old Englishman – Blues fans jumped at the chance to wax lyrical over the starlet.

Mount has been a revelation this season after being introduced to the first-team set-up by Frank Lampard, with a number of other youngsters (per The Daily Mirror), and fans are delighted with the talent on show.

This season marks the youngsters third in senior professional football and his first within the Chelsea first team, having spent the previous two seasons out on loan with Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem initially, and then Derby County (per Transfermarkt).

In ten Premier League outings this term, the £31.5 million-rated man has netted on four occasions and assisted on a further two (per Transfermarkt), earning himself an average rating of 7.22 in the league (via Whoscored).

Despite some fans’ efforts to pour cold water on the delight over Mount, supporters were keen to stay positive over the 20-year-old.

What do we think?

Having worked with one another at Derby County last season, Frank Lampard will know Mount to a greater degree than the majority of the other players in the dressing room – having coached him for a season extra.

Therefore, Lampard will know, to a greater extent, the areas of Mounts game to train and should the pair continue to work together – the 20-year-old certainly has the raw potential to follow in his gaffer’s legendary footsteps.
