‘At the heart of everything positive’ – These Chelsea fans laud star after solid first-half performance against Crystal Palace

Posted by

Some Chelsea supporters have been left in awe of Mason Mount after the attacking midfielder’s game-changing first-half performance for the Blues in their Premier League opener against Crystal Palace.

Thomas Tuchel has set up the Blues in a 3-4-2-1 formation, which sees Mount and Christian Pulisic as the attackers who are operating between their respective wings and the middle.

Mount was the difference maker for his boyhood club in the opening 45 minutes, driving the Blues forward with his creativity and being at the centre of most of their best work.

The 22-year-old won the free-kick that Marcos Alonso curled into the top corner to hand Chelsea the lead, before playing a key role with his work on the right flank to help set up Christian Pulisic’s goal.

One Chelsea fan’s statement on Mount being ‘at the heart of everything positive’ for the side couldn’t ring more true after a dominant display so far against the Eagles.

Here is how the Blues’ faithful have reacted to the first-half, supporters are especially heaping the praise on Mount and Jorginho:

The Blues have looked very free-flowing in the final third, which is dangerous enough as it is but a frightening sight when you consider that they haven’t even got Romelu Lukaku playing today.

Mount is playing a major role in the side’s creativity so far, if he can maintain the lively impact he makes in the final third, Lukaku will be spoilt for chances to put away for the Blues this season.
