Chelsea have been handed a major boost with manager Graham Potter hailing the conduct of Mason Mount following the arrival of Thomas Tuchel at the club.
The Blues have made a bright start under their new boss, with the team unbeaten in their last five Premier League games, but the changes have been felt more by some players than others.
Mount was an ever-present under Frank Lampard, but under Tuchel, he has found himself on the sidelines more often than not. However, Potter has praised the youngster's professionalism and insists he is still a key part of the team.
“Mason has been great in his approach to training and playing, he's been very professional,” Potter told reporters.
“He's obviously had to adapt to a new manager and new style of play, but he's done that very well and he's still an important part of this team. We're very happy with the way he's conducted himself.”
The news will be a major boost to Tuchel, who is reportedly keen to make some new signings this summer. The German is said to be eyeing up a move for Bayern Munich's Kingsley Coman, while Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland also remains a target.
It remains to be seen whether the Blues will be able to get their hands on either this summer, but Tuchel will be buoyed by Potter's comments on Mount, with the England international undoubtedly a key player for the club going forward.
