Mason Mount was of the best players in Chelsea's two-nil victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, and his performance didn't go unnoticed. Chelsea manager Frank Lampard hailed his performance and that of other academy players at his Southampton pre-match press conference earlier today.

"I believe in these players and the young players and I though Mason Mount’s performance, not just to isolate Mason as I thought Tammy was fantastic and Tomori was too, but his performance was a great example of why you want to stick with and have patience with these young players because he is a young boy and there will be moments where the game will be difficult for him and he will learn.

"And the next one he will be better. And then there will be games like the other day when you can see the player that he is. If we are not patient  and stick with the players we might be in a situation before where absolutely  top world-class players at this minute have been at Chelsea when they were 20 or 21 and managers maybe did not stick with them so much then. I am in a position where I will stick with them." Lampard said.

Chelsea will face Southampton on Boxing Day, and Lampard be hoping for the same performance they produced against Tottenham.
