Mason Mount

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has defended his decision to start young midfielder Mason Mount against top four rivals Manchester United at the weekend.

Mason Mount was named in the starting XI for Chelsea as they lost 4-0 to Manchester United in their opening game of the new Premier League campaign.

Chelsea were beaten due to the goals from Marcus Rashford (2), Anthony Martial and Daniel James who came in as a second half substitute before wrapping up the game with nine minutes left on the clock.

Frank Lampard defended his decision to hand Mason Mount his first Premier League start during his pre-match press conference ahead of the UEFA Super Cup clash with Liverpool on Wednesday night.

According to him, Mason Mount made the starting XI on merit before adding that he’s not afraid to pick young players.

Frank Lampard revealed that he doesn’t have any problems with thrusting young players into the limelight.

Lampard would be hoping that the young players in his team will step up to the party when they take on Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul.

While Chelsea lost heavily against Manchester United, Liverpool were victorious against Norwich City after they won 4-1 in what was the first game of the new Premier League season.
