Mount also spoke about Chelsea’s 1-0 win on the night and its importance to the side’s season.
massive win. Look, every game now is big, we need to get as many points now as we can to keep pushing up the table.
“We want to finish as high as we can, we’ve got the team to do it, we’re on a good run at the moment and we need to keep going, that’s the focus at the moment.
“I just try to give my best, performance-wise, if I’m starting or come off the bench, I try to do my best for the team. I feel like everyone recently has been really together, been putting really good performances together.
“Hopefully that continues and we keep pushing, but I’m happy today to get a goal.”
Tuchel was also quick to laud his side’s attitude and compact nature on the night.
“Excellent moments with the ball, moments where we needed to suffer but we never lost the attitude, discipline, desire and courage to defend. It was a well-deserved win, a big performance and result. No, we don’t plan matches we just plan the performance,” the Chelsea supremo said.
