Mason Mount produced a match-winning display for Chelsea against Liverpool in the Premier League last night and West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice has shared his thoughts on the 22-year-old’s performance against the Premier League champions.
Rice tweeted that the Chelsea midfielder has been proving everyone wrong week in week out.

The 22-year-old was the best player on the pitch night and he continues to show that he is an indispensable asset for the Blues.
When Thomas Tuchel came in, there were whispers that the midfielder could be dropped in favour of Kai Havertz. However, Mount has managed to win the trust of his manager and he has cemented his place in the starting line-up since then.
The midfielder has six goals and six assists to his name so far and it remains to be seen whether he can guide his side to Champions League qualification the season.
The 22-year-old is still quite young and he is likely to get better with experience and coaching. The Chelsea fans will be excited to see him develop over the coming years.
Mount shares a great friendship with the West ham midfielder and Rice publicly admitted his desire to play with the Chelsea player at club level.
The West Ham star has been linked with a move away from the club in recent months and he was thought to be a target for the former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.
