Premier League legend tips Mount, Maddison for bright futures

Chelsea youngster Mason Mount and Leicester City's James Maddison have been tipped for bright futures following an impressive start to the current season. 

Former goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer believes the duo will have bright futures for both club and country, further saying they are a joy to watch. 

Mount has been a revelation under Frank Lampard at Chelsea this season, scoring four goals in the opening eight matches besides putting in quality performances.

Maddison, on the other hand, has become integral for Brendan Rodgers at Leicester, with his goals a key addition to his overall game as well. 

"I think Mount has done really well so far," Schwarzer said while speaking to Goal.

"He has been exciting to watch. He is a big talent, he played very well in the Championship last season under Frank [Lampard] so he knows him really well,"

"I like so much about him. The biggest thing is that movement, dropping the shoulder, taking on a player and caressing the ball. His link-up play is very good. His understanding of Tammy Abraham is very good. I like his evolution,"

"I think Maddison has done really well," he added. "He has already had one fantastic season in the Premier League that was beyond anyone’s expectations outside of Leicester. He got the call-up that’s very deserving. He is one that needs consistency over a number of seasons,"

The duo received England call-ups for the latest round of EURO 2020, but Maddison withdrew due to illness. 

Mount is expected to start for the Czech Republic on Friday.
