[Quotes on Frank Lampard the manager] Being a Chelsea midfielder, I would always watch him and try to take things from his game. This season he’s taught me a lot about timing my movements into the penalty area and getting into the right positions, as well as pressing when we don’t have the ball
[On Lampard’s assistant, Jody Morris, Mount added] He’s been a massive influence on my career. He was my manager when I first played for Chelsea’s Under-18s. We won two FA Cup Youth Cups and he made me captain for the second. I owe him a lot and it’s great to work with him

[Mason Mount talks about scaring childhood friend Declan Rice while on holiday] We were on the boat for the day, relaxing in Dubai. It was so hot. He was so red, like a tomato. He had to go inside so I thought I would chill for a bit. He’s snoring away, so I went over, obviously this quite scared him, and as soon as it happened I realised this video was the best video I’m ever going to have

[Mason Mount does not expect Billy Gilmour to struggle in the spotlight] He is very grounded. He has got a very, very good family around him and he is a very screwed-on boy so that won’t get to him at all. I won’t let it get to him as well, I’ll keep him grounded! No, he’ll be fine. I’m not surprised [by his performances]. I know what he is as a player, as a boy. I am very close to him so I know what character he has. I had no doubts about him coming in, stepping up and performing like the way he has in the last two games. I have massive confidence in him and he shows it when he comes out onto the pitch. The young players coming through, they are going to have these challenges. It is obviously a big achievement to make it into the first team, to start a game at home at Stamford Bridge. The way my debut went here was very good. I scored but Billy has stepped up and done brilliantly. He’s come into the team, been dominant, been confident on the ball and that’s what you want.

[What Chelsea star Mason Mount regularly does with Frank Lampard after training] I have found recently that I have been trying too hard to score and kind of snatching at shots and trying to take shot when off-balance and stuff. When you are so focused on scoring and thinking I need to score then you do that.
It does happen that you start snatching at it. You don’t take your time and focus on your technique enough. I had looked at my game and where I have been going wrong recently and to aim to stay calm and not to try to look for it as much as I have been
It just happened. It just happened. I took a touch and turned and finished. It wasn’t me kind of thinking about it too much
[Lampard] has been talking to me about getting into positions. I think I took a shot against Bournemouth from kind of an impossible angle where I was just trying to score a worldy when it wasn’t on. We spoke about that.
More just me personally looking at my game, speaking to my dad as well. I think about games like the Bayern game where I snatched a chance with my left foot where it hasn’t been on.
I just wanted to score so much and then it is something where you don’t have to try so much. It just comes at the right time and it did today
