Former Liverpool star, Graeme Souness singled out ‘top-class’ Mason Mount as the best player in Chelsea for their Premier League clash against Leeds United on Wednesday.
Chelsea beat Premier League relegation-battlers Leeds United 3-0 at Elland Road on Wednesday, with goals from Mount, Christian Pulisic and Romelu Lukaku.
Mount netted the first goal and assisted the second, helping the Blues secure their Champions League place next season.
“What a boy this is. I think he’s top-class,” Sky Sports pundit Souness said of Mount after Chelsea’s comfortable victory.
“I remember Chelsea fans doubting him a couple of years ago, there’s nothing to doubt about him. He’s energetic, he’s a workaholic, he’s got great skill, an eye for a pass.
“He’s just a top player at such a young age. Mason Mount and Reece James, two young lads, were the two best players on the pitch tonight.”
Up next for Thomas Tuchel’s Blues is their FA Cup final tie with Liverpool at the Wembley stadium on Saturday.
Chelsea will be hoping to claim their first trophy of the season, while the Reds will be looking to win a second after winning the Carabao Cup.
