Mason Mount has broken a Hakim Ziyech record
We need to understand the impact of Mason Mount in the Chelsea team, that has endeared both Frank Lampard and Gareth Southgate to the young midfielder.
However, Hakim Ziyech has been Chelsea’s chief creator so far, but Mason Mount’s performance against Leeds showed that Mason Mount’s game is even beyond the work rate he’s also known for.
Mount got an assist against Leeds but the high point of his game is that he created 7 chances in that game, the most of any Chelsea player in a single game this season. Even Ziyech who’s been hailed as a chief creator hasn’t reached this height yet in the Premier League.
Meanwhile, Ziyech and Mount have the most big chances in the Premier League this, with four apiece.
Ziyech and Mount are in the top 10 for big chances created in the Premier League so far this season, as they are tied to number 10 position. Harry Kane tops the chart with 9 big chances created, Mohamed Salah is second with 8 big chances created, while Kevin De Bruyne has 7 big chances created.
