The highly-rated playmaker was among those to benefit from a transfer embargo but says He’ll welcome any Contest now that the ban has been Raised
Mason Mount remains unfazed by Chelsea’s capacity to go and buy”£80 million gamers who are world-class”, with all the 21-year-old welcoming competition for his place.
With Frank Lampard prevented from strengthening his positions last summer, religion was revealed in promising youngsters.
Mount is one of those to have handed been given a normal function, with 31 appearances taken from the England global.
His position could come under threat now that the Blues have the ability to add again, but with that threat hanging over him holds no fear for the gifted playmaker.
Mount told the Daily Mail:”For me, it is about having that exact same attitude I’ve had since I was six and making sure I never lose it.
You understand Chelsea can always purchase #60 million or #70m or #80m players who are world-class. They wish to come here and take my place.
“Just because I’m an academy boy and young, that does not mean anything. However, the mentality I’ve means I will not be pushed over readily.
In a club as big as Chelsea you have to have this mindset. It’s why I’m here in the first place.”
Mount has impressed many with his performances this year, with five goals listed across all contests, but admits that his own standards dipped marginally lately as Chelsea struggled for form as a collective.
He added: “It is natural that young players will be up and down and it is most likely the best thing that could happen.
“If I’m not good enough in a match — if I’m losing the ball and things — then I see those as crucial experiences and that I will not hide from that. You’re playing against world-class players and they’ll make the most of days when you’re off it. Those are the best lessons you learn.
“After those home games you mentioned, I looked at myself and inquired whether I created enough opportunities or took enough shots. We were not scoring. I look at myself and know I had to do more.
“I’m an attacking midfielder and I want to find into the box. Stamford Bridge must be a fortress and it has not been.
“The gaffer has put his confidence in me to begin matches so if I’m not doing it, I will be hard on myself. My father is too. Just because I’m young it does not matter. You need to step up and perform.”
