‘Exciting’ times ahead for Chelsea as Mount reflects on promising win

There have been question marks over Lampard’s side early on this season, with the pressure on the coach to bed in over £200million worth of summer signings at a club with a high turnover of managers in recent years.

However, midfielder Mount feels the squad are beginning to understand each other on the pitch, and predicts big things as they develop further.

“It feels like it’s starting to come together for us”, he told the club’s website. “It was always going to take some time for us to all click as a team, but [on Saturday] it felt like we were moving with each other, we knew where each other was going to go, and it kind of clicked.

“It’s exciting when we’re playing like that and winning and scoring goals. Now we need to focus on keeping that going.

“There’s a lot of competition in the squad to try and get in the team, but we are all working hard, we are all a group, all a family, so all we want to do is win as many games as we can and try to keep pushing to be number one. That’s our goal.”

Chelsea’s defending was out of sorts earlier this season, but four clean sheets in a row have given the Blues more confidence – as has their aerial threat at set-pieces.

“The gaffer said at half-time at 1-0 it’s never done,” Mount added. “They put some pressure on us early in the second half. We knew it was going to come, we had to weather it and then getting that second goal from big Zou winning headers.

“We need that set-piece threat, we didn’t really have it last season, and we have scored quite a few already this season. It’s something we can continue to improve on.”
