Eagle-eyed Chelsea fan spots Mason Mount Instagram activity which hints at shirt number change

When Mount came into the fold at Stamford Bridge, he was merely a spring chicken, hence why he was given the number 19 shirt, opposed to anything more iconic.

He’s now one of the best midfielders in the country, a European champion at club level and a full England international. His development has been a quite remarkable watch.

There’s some suggestion that he could be set to be handed a new shirt number which would reflect the increase in his importance at to the team and the club as a whole.

Could Mason Mount be set to inherit Frank Lampard’s famous number 8?

The number 8 shirt is also available, having previously been worn by Ross Barkley, who stands little chance of being included in Thomas Tuchel’s squad.

Mount could be given a number which would be far more fashionable for his brand as a player, with the 22-year-old also somewhat officially taking the baton off of Lampard.

There’s not a Chelsea fan in the land who won’t want to see it happen…
