Chelsea fans were left praising Mason Mount after a post by the club’s official Twitter account following their 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.
Do Chelsea desperately need January signings?
The Blues beat the south coast side thanks to goals from Jorginho and Willian, with Mount winning the penalty for the opening goal (via BBC).
The £31.5m-rated midfielder has enjoyed a stunning start to life in the first team at Stamford Bridge, scoring three goals and assisting one in his first seven Premier League games (via Transfermarkt).
His performances even saw him called up to the England squad for September’s international fixtures before winning his first two senior caps (via talkSPORT).
Fans were lavishing the attacker with praise following his performance in the club’s first Premier League home win under manager Frank Lampard as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Stamford Bridge faithful:
I’ll give him 2 years to be best midfielder in the world

Growing by the game, absolute luxury to have on the pitch!

He’s so influential to the team. He sets a tempo and sticks to it. Always makes dangerous forward runs, and creates chances. Im gonna give him my clothes for ironing cuz he’s such a good presser.
