‘Form is temporary, ‘class is permanent’: Lots of Chelsea fans react to midfielder’s performance vs Liverpool
A selection of Chelsea fans on Twitter were delighted with Mason Mount following his impressive showing against Liverpool in the Premier League last night.
The Blues went into the game needing a victory to jump into the top four and managed to do so through Mount, who scored the only goal at Anfield in the 42nd minute.
The west London giants were the better attacking side over the course of the game and were unlucky to not open the scoring in the 25th minute.
Werner pounced on a long ball before rounding the goalkeeper to find the back of the net, but his strike was cancelled out by VAR as he was offside by millimetres.
The Blues kept on going and eventually broke the deadlock before the interval when Mount was found on the left flank through a brilliant pinpoint pass from N’Golo Kante.
Mount managed to run across the Reds defence before curling his shot past goalkeeper Alisson Becker into the bottom-right corner of the net.
The 22-year-old continued to impress with his tireless workrate and aside from the goal, he managed three key passes which was more than anyone on the field
The midfielder has been criticised by some fans in the past for the lack of consistency in terms of his shooting, but he has made a significant improvement lately.
Under manager Thomas Tuchel, he has evolved into a better player and has now netted three goals from his previous five league games.
With the result, the Blues have returned to the fourth spot in the league and also ended their seven-year wait for a league victory at Anfield.
Here are some reactions from Blues fans after the game.
Mount has 9 G/A (one was a deflected shot) and 1 pen won vs Arsenal this season. ZERO of those have been when we were up. 3 direct winners vs Pool/Sheffield/Fulham, equalizer vs Soton, first goal vs WBA. All of his assists put us ahead too. That's over 15 points won for us.

Mason Mount by far very tidy on the ball and the best player on the pitch
