Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has praised one of his players on the back of the easy win over Brighton and Hove Albion in their Premier League meeting on Saturday evening.

Frank Lampard singled out young midfielder Mason Mount for praise after the game against Brighton at home.

Chelsea defeated Brighton 2-0 courtesy two second-half goals from Jorginho (penalty) and Willian.

The Blues were frustrated in the first half which ended in a goalless draw in addition to the fact that they had 17 shots in just 45 minutes.

Mason Mount capitalized on an error from Brighton defender Adam Webster to give Chelsea a good chance of breaking the deadlock.

The young Englishman was brought down by summer signing Webster and that led to the opening goal of the game from Italian international midfielder Jorginho who made no mistake from the penalty spot.

Chelsea doubled their lead towards the end of the game via the aforementioned Willian.

Apart from the penalty incident, Mason Mount had a very good game and that led to the praise from his manager.

Mason Mount has been in very good form for Chelsea since returning from a successful spell at English Championship side Derby County in the summer.
