Mason Mount says his first season in Premier League has been a learning curve, and he can’t wait to be playing again

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount says he’s grown “on and off the pitch” during his first season in the first team at Stamford Bridge.

Mount, who was brought into the first team by manager Frank Lampard after working with him at Derby last season, says that he’s matured as a player and as a person since returning to South West London.

“There’s been ups and downs, but the main thing for me coming out of this season is how much I’ve learnt and grown as a player, on and off the pitch,” said Mount.

“Also how much I’ve learnt playing against some of the best players in the world. It’s my first season in the Premier League and, as a boy, I dreamt of playing in the Premier League.

“For me to have my first season, make loads of debuts and score some goals has meant so much to me.”
