Chelsea fans are counting down the days until their team is back in action, with little more than a week until their Premier League season resumes.
Lots of Blues supporters are even more excited following a recent Instagram post from Mason Mount. The 21-year-old has uploaded a photo of him during a training session ahead of the return of the Premier League and many fans in the comments can hardly contain their excitement.
Who is the better creative midfielder?
Chelsea will face off against Aston Villa on Sunday 21 June in their first top-flight match since March. Before the league was halted, Frank Lampard’s side were in good stead to challenge for their place in the Champions League next season. The Blues are currently on course to qualify for the tournament as they occupy fourth place in the Premier League.
However, lurking just three points behind are a hungry-looking Manchester United, who will put up a fight for their place in the top four. Chelsea will need players like Mount to pull off some solid performances if they are to keep up with the pack.
The playmaker has a 2019/20 tally of six goals and five assists in the league this season (via Tranfermarkt), with every chance of adding to that once the action returns next week.
