John Terry has singled out Mason Mount following the youngster's role in Chelsea's 2-1 win over basement boys Sheffield United on Sunday night, February 7, at Bramall Lane.

Mount and Jorginho both found the back of the net during the encounter to inspire the Blues to their third consecutive league win under the tutelage of Thomas Tuchel.

It was, however, Mount who broke the deadlock with the visitor's opener on the stroke of half-time, before Sheffield pulled one back shortly into the second half thanks to Antonio Rudiger's calamitous own goal.

Jorgingo went on to restore Chelsea's lead from the spot after Aaron Ramsdale brought down Timo Werner in the area.

Mount's goal was his third in the Premier League league as the west London side climbed to fifth on the log with 39 points.

Terry, who is currently Aston Villa's assistant boss is clearly keeping tabs on his former side during the clash as he took to Instagram to react to the youngster's performance at Bramall Lane.

"Mason Mount what a player. How have the commentators not even mentioned this," the legendary defender posted.

Reacting to the victory, Tuchel praised his players for turning up against "a team full of energy and courage."

"Against a very direct and physical team, you have to accept that not all moments in the game are easy and we accepted that, which was good," Metro UK quoted the German saying.

"We had some difficult moments to overcome, we were lucky with the penalty not to be 1-0 down, but in general it was a deserved win," he added.

Chelsea will be looking to build on the new-found momentum when they play Newcastle United in their next league match set for Monday night, February 15.

However, before then, they will have to contend with an FA Cup fifth round fixture against Barnsley scheduled for Thursday night, February 11.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that former professional footballer who is currently working as a pundit Graeme Souness has made it clear that Timo Werner was the major reason that got Frank Lampard sacked at Chelsea.

Last season, Frank Lampard replaced Sarri as Chelsea's coach and helped the Blues to finish among the top four teams on the final Premier League table.
