Former Chelsea defender John Terry heaped praise on one player during the win over Sheffield United that he thinks the commentators missed.
The Blues picked up a 2-1 win over Sheffield United on Sunday to push themselves back into the race for the top four.
Jorginho scored the winning penalty after a comical Antonio Rudiger own goal gave the Blades a way back into the game.
Mason Mount was the man to open the scoring for Chelsea though, striking just before half time with a fine finish from the edge of the box.
Despite bagging his third Premier League goal of the season, Mount went under the radar, with the commentators failing to highlight his impact on the game.

That was opinion of Chelsea legend Terry, who paid homage to the 22-year-old on Instagram.
He wrote on his story while watching the game live: “Mason Mount what a player. How have the commentators not even mentioned this?”
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admitted that his players had a tough ride against a battling Sheffield United.

The German insisted that his side deserved to win though after overcoming the obstacles Chris Wilder’s side put in their way.
“You arrive in Sheffield in February and it’s waiting for you,” said Tuchel at full-time.
“It feels like a cup game when you arrive against a team full of energy and courage.

“Against a very direct and physical team, you have to accept that not all moments in the game are easy and we accepted that, which was good.
“We had some difficult moments to overcome, we were lucky with the penalty not to be 1-0 down, but in general it was a deserved win and I’m happy for that because from here we can build confidence.”
