Mount has made it consecutive Player of the Season awards, having been crowned as the best player in the Chelsea squad once more.

He said: "Mason is a fantastic player & I'm pleased he's getting those numbers. He's a player of such a high level and those numbers reflect it. Brilliant for him."

Speaking last month, Mount admitted that he sets himself targets and wanted to reach double figures for goals and assists this season, which he did on the way to winning the award.

He said:"It has been a productive season for me. At the beginning of the season, it is something I looked at.

"You want to be that midfielder that gets into the box, is a threat and scores. That’s something that I have looked at and always wanted to be."
