Former Everton star names Chelsea player as ‘Premier League’s most exciting young player’ » Chelsea News

During these times without football, one of the few positives to come out is that we are getting to see a number of extra interviews from players and former players who are holed up in their isolation, killing time.

It is always great to hear the views from the pro’s, the ones who have played the game, know it inside out, and really understand football.

One player who was always very intelligent on the pitch is former Everton and Australia midfielder Tim Cahill.

The Premier League legend decided to partake in a question and answer session conducted by Sky Sports over the weekend, and he was full of praise for one Chelsea player in particular.

Cahill was asked ‘Who’s the Premier League’s most exciting young player’?

He responded:

“I like the look of Mason Mount. I think he’s a top goalscorer and he’s got a massive career ahead of him.

“One of the reasons why I like him a lot is because of his coach [Frank Lampard] and the way that he’s trying to mould a player similar to himself. He can lead him and show him the right ways.

“You can see that starting to come to fruition with his football this season. I’m a big fan.”

Mount has had a very decent first season in the top flight, despite receiving some very odd criticism from a small section of the Chelsea online fan base.

He has all but played every minute under Frank Lampard so far this season, which really says all you need to know right now.
