Mason Mount played a key role in Frank Lampard’s first Chelsea managerial spell; Lampard has returned as Blues caretaker boss until end of season; Mount has struggled this campaign with injuries and a lack of form; Lampard: ‘I know what I get from Mason. He’s a huge player for Chelsea’
The 44-year-old previously managed the Blues from July 2019 until January 2021, with Mount playing a key role under him.
But the England international has endured a difficult season amid injuries, a lack of form and speculation around his future at Stamford Bridge, with his contract expiring next summer.
The 24-year-old has been an unused substitute in Chelsea’s last two games, but he could be set for a return under Lampard.
