Mason Mount reveals inspiration behind his goal celebration against Liverpool

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has explained the inspiration behind his goal celebration on Thursday night as the Blues saw off Liverpool 1-0 at Anfield. 

The young midfielder scored the lone goal in the 42nd minute, after latching on to a long ball from N'Golo Kante before finding the bottom corner with a superb shot. 

This was his third goal in three away games in a row, following it up with strikes against Southampton and Sheffield United

"Me and Chilly always sit together behind Zouma on the plane when we travel away for the Champions League and stuff," added Mount. "He’s always watching cartoons like anime so we usually watch from behind and laugh at him,"

"We said if one of us scored, we’d do it so that was the reason behind it and obviously it’s one for Kurt as well," 

The 22-year-old reflected on his goal and the win at Anfield, which took them into the top-four in the Premier League

"I’m very happy with the performance of the whole team," he stated. "It’s never easy coming here because you always get a tough game against this team at this stadium but we’ve been playing well and our mindset coming into the game was confident,"

"We’ve been on a good run recently, winning games, getting points, and not conceding many chances or goals. We felt like we could come here, put in a good performance, and win the game. When you turn up with that mentality, of wanting to give it to them and press high, you’re always going to have a chance,"

Mount will be hoping he continues with his good run as Chelsea take on fellow top-four challengers Everton on Monday nigh.
