Chelsea’s Mason Mount may not excite ‘modern fan’ but is a manager’s dream, says Frank Lampard

Mason Mount started all three of England’s internationals

“The thing about Mason is that he has a great attitude, he’s a fit young man and will have a lot of games coming up that I will need him to be fit for.

“I have to look at each player in their own respect in terms of rotation, minutes in-game, substitutions, when they can come on, because the schedule has never been busier, there’s never been more of a pressure on players.

“But I can’t sit here and say Gareth Southgate shouldn’t make the decisions he makes when he’s England manager and in the position he’s in. That’s just a part of the story.

“With Mason I hope that he comes through fresh because at the minute he’s in great form.”

Christian Pulisic will miss out at St James’ Park with a hamstring injury, while Thiago Silva will be rested.
