Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to West Ham now means they’re without a win in three games across all competitions and their previous run of six league wins seems far away indeed. It’s the first time they’ve failed to score since their 1-0 defeat to Valencia on September 17 and fans have noticed the drop in form.
One player who supporters have seen take a dip is Mason Mount, who lost possession 17 times on Saturday, according to SofaScore. He’s been a Frank Lampard favourite since their time at Derby together where the manager started him in 38 games of the season last term. Meanwhile, at Chelsea, Lampard has started him in all but one of the Premier League games so far this season. It’s not clear how long he should keep believing in him though.
Fans appear to now be questioning the manager’s loyalty to the 20-year-old after the disappointing display yesterday, and many took to Twitter to slam the manager for continuing to start him.
You can see some of the fans’ reactions, here:
What can we take from today?
1) We desperately need the market in January, our current depth is poor and main players are getting tired quickly which is very worrying.
2) Mount offers no creativity and cannot be played as the number 10, goes missing too much.
3) Pedro OUT.

The hype around Mount – incuding selection for England – has been ridiculous. He might, just might, make a top class player but he’s a long way off it at the moment. Energy doesnt equal excellence.

Mount is talented but definitely not for big games, at least now !!

If nobody will say it I will, Mason Mount has been awful for so many games now. Needs to be benched and given the same treatment Pulisic got earlier on this season.

Chelsea fans, would you start start Mason Mount in the next game? If not, who would you replace him with?
