Declan Rice Reckons This Chelsea Midfielder Can Be A Prolific Goal-Scorer: Should Lampard Be Excited?

In a recent interview with Standard Sport, West Ham United midfield ace Declan Rice revealed that he is not surprised by Chelsea playmaker Mason Mount’s prolific form and said, “I’m not surprised at all [with his form].

“I’ve said to loads of people; he could score in every game if he wanted to. I can tell he’s training with Frank and they’re working really well because he’s like a second striker, making those runs which Lampard used to do. He’s going to keep doing that at Chelsea for years.”

Mount’s Incredible Rise To The Top Of English Football

Rice’s words of encouragement will be a big boost for Mount as it is further proof of his incredible potential. The 20-year-old has enjoyed a brilliant start to this Premier League campaign after he put in a couple of match-winning displays for the Pensioners. The English youngster has netted two goals in five matches for the West London outfit across all competitions.

Mount made his first international appearance for Gareth Southgate’s English national side in their 4-0 win over Bulgaria last week. At such a young age, he has already established himself as a regular starter in the Premier League.

With matches coming thick and fast for Chelsea after the international break, Mount would have plenty of opportunities to showcase his prolific nature in front of the opposition goal. Rice knows the English prospect well as both players came through the Pensioners’ academy. Therefore, the Hammers midfield ace might have a point with his claim that his best friend has what it takes to score in every match.

What Does The English Prospect Offer On The Field?

Mount is moderately paced but has outstanding ball control which enables him to travel with the ball out of tight areas and wreak havoc in the final third. The English rising star can orchestrate chances for others around him and is a potent goal-threat from long range. However, he still has a long way to go before he is ready to be a consistent goal-scorer from midfield like his manager Frank Lampard.

Should Lampard Be Excited About Mount’s Potential?

However, the Pensioners boss has every reason to be satisfied with Mount’s recent emergence at Stamford Bridge. The former Derby County starlet has somewhat filled the void left by Eden Hazard’s departure, so there are a lot of reasons for Lampard to be excited about what’s in store in the future. Mount has all the skillset required to be a Chelsea legend as long as he can continue improving his game with each season.
