Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel said he will continue to push Mason Mount to improve after his man-of-the-match display against Tottenham on Thursday night.
Jorginho’s penalty handed Tuchel his first away win, with Mount starting in Chelsea’s forward line along with Callum Hudson-Odoi and Timo Werner.
Mount was a regular starter under former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, but eyebrows had been raised when then England international was omitted from Tuchel’s first starting XI against Wolves last month.

However, the 22-year-old has gone on to start their next two Premier League games, and while Tuchel said there are no guarantees going forward – with a trip to Sheffield United next on Sunday, live on Sky Sports – the Chelsea boss was full of praise for both Mount’s quality and personality.
“To Mason, I cannot tell you where his limit is,” Tuchel said. “I don’t want to put a limit to his development. It is obvious he has a lot of potential. Besides that he’s a great footballer he’s a super nice guy, he’s eager to learn, he is hungry to win, he is open-minded.
