Mason Mount has been one of the revelations of the season so far in the Premier League after scoring 5 goals in 17 appearances for Chelsea. The 20-year old revealed to Chelsea magazine what he did to get into the first team.

'I hadn’t had a full pre-season with Chelsea before last summer so that was my first goal – to go away with the first team, work hard, show the manager I was ready to play and get as many minutes as I could in pre-season,’ he said of his start to the season. ‘I knew that would give me the best chance to show him that, when the season started, I could step in and play a big part.

‘I always set a target of 10 goals too – double figures – no matter who it’s with. I achieved that last season and the year before, so hopefully I can do that this time as well. If you’re stepping up a level, then you’ve got to go to that level with your performances as well.

‘The players around you are going to be better so you have to be better as well. Ten goals was always something I felt kept me focused and kept me looking forward, at any level.’ Mount said.

Mason Mount has made 25 appearances for Chelsea this season after spending last season on loan at Derby County.
