Mason Mount is excited by the potential of Chelsea’s new-look front three, with the duo of Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz impressing.

Mason Mount is pleased to see Chelsea’s new-look front-three doing well, especially for the duo of Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz.

The young trio helped the Blues to a crushing 4-1 win over Crystal Palace last time out. Pulisic and Havertz were among the goals as Mount was named Man of the Match.

Thomas Tuchel may have stumbled upon an attacking trident that can go on to rival those elsewhere, such as at Liverpool, with the early indications being a system favouring energetic playmakers and a false nine is the way forward.

Mount told Chelsea’s official website of working alongside Pulsic and Havertz: “I don’t think it has come together like that since our first game together.”

“It was always coming; it was always brewing. We started off very sharp. At the top of the pitch our combinations were good, we were creating chances and we took them. That’s something we probably haven’t been doing as much recently.”

“We know we have a lot of quality in the team. When we’re on it and we’re creating chances we can score a lot of goals. It hadn’t happened like that but it has now and that’s great for us.”

“We came into the game with a lot of confidence after Porto knowing what we can do. As a team we felt very strong. We know what is on the line. We’re still in three competitions so every game is so important.”
