Mason Mount has said that he has been doing extra training with Frank Lampard to improve on his finishing.
The 20-year-old midfielder has had a good start to the season, and has already scored two goals in the first four league games.

His early form has clearly impressed England manager Gareth Southgate, who has called him up to the England squad for the Three Lions’ Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo.
The former Derby County loanee has been talking ahead of the two matches about his connection with Lampard. He said:

“After training, we would do some finishing sometimes.

“Obviously talking to him every day, especially after games, [he] tells me what I can do better, where I can make the runs and where I can get into the box.

“I’m always speaking to him and trying to learn things every day. Mostly after training, we do finishing and there’s no better person to learn from than him.”

This should be music to the ears of Chelsea fans. Extra training shows dedication and desire to improve and, at just 20 years of age, Mount is still going through his development.

His desire to play for Chelsea is admirable. A recent interview revealed that Mount’s father had suggested he leave Stamford Bridge in his teens as he thought he would have a better chance of succeeding elsewhere, but the midfielder was adamant he would eventually get his chance, and he has been proven right.

Lampard is clearly a fan of the number 19, playing him in 38 games in the Championship, and his experience at the top of the game is one of the main things he brings as a manager.

Certainly for his midfielders, he is the perfect former player to learn from; there are few in the history of the Premier League who have been so deadly on the edge of the box, with the former West Ham United man scoring 177 times in the division.
