John Terry singles out Chelsea star during Sheffield United win

Terry on mount

Chelsea legend John Terry has singled out Mason Mount for special praise during the club’s 2-1 win over Sheffield United on Sunday.

Mount scored Chelsea’s first goal of the game in the first half but Sheffield United equalised through Antonio Rudiger’s own goal.

However, the blues were able to go back in front as Jorginho converted a penalty after Aaron Ramsdale brought down Timo Werner in the penalty box.

Mount now has three goals in the Premier League this campaign, while the win has put Tuchel’s side fifth in the Premier league and only a point behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

Terry was keeping a close eye on his former team on Sunday and during the second half, the ex-Chelsea skipper was clearly impressed with Mount’s performance.

In a post on his Instagram account, Terry wrote: ‘Mason Mount what a player. How have the commentators not even mentioned this.’

Tuchel, meanwhile, praised his team for their response to ‘difficult moments’ in the victory over relegation-battling Sheffield United.

‘You arrive in Sheffield in February and it’s waiting for you,’ said the Chelsea manager.

‘It feels like a cup game when you arrive 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.

‘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 and I’m happy for that because from here we can build confidence.’
