Ashley Cole believes that Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is one of the top players in world football at the moment.
Mount who has been absolutely fantastic for Chelsea all season has proven his worth to Thomas Tuchel’s side and proving all critics wrong when he was labelled as Frank Lampard’s favourite during the former Chelsea boss’ time at Stamford Bridge.
His immense importance and contribution has really been evident and Cole believes he’s one of the top midfielders in world football right now.
He told Sky Sports: “Mason is so vital for this team, he can make runs in behind, he can play to feet.
“That’s what Mason gives you, he runs in behind, takes players away, draws players in, here he takes two players out of the game (with his touch) and it’s a brilliant through ball.
“He’s a humble boy, a Chelsea fan living the dream. But within that he wants to work hard, he wants to improve, to score goals, runs for his team.
“He shows that enthusiasm day in day out and that’s what makes him for me one of the top players in world football right now, definitely in the Premier League, and of course vital for Chelsea.
