This is before any other new arrivals are taken into consideration, further impacting Mount’s game time.
On the plus side, Chelsea are currently on course to qualify for the Champions League so Lampard is sure to rotate heavily in order to compete across multiple fronts.
The Blues boss is known to be a big fan of Mount and was particularly impressed by his application in pre-season training.
“He’s done a lot. Coming back here, obviously I worked with him last year [at Derby County], and I’m really happy with how he’s trained and his status within the group,” said Lampard.
