Now when the football fans ask who is the face of Chelsea’s football academy, there is only one answer for it: Mason Tony Mount. The English footballer turns 23 on 10th January. Happy Birthday, Mount! Mason Mount has never failed to impress in football betting in recent years.

Mason Mount joined the academy of Chelsea in 2005. Before that, at the age of four, he spent one day a week training in the academies at Portsmouth and Chelsea.

At age 18, Mount was promoted to Chelsea’s senior team. He previously debuted for the club’s under-18 team in 2014, at age 15, and also appeared consistently for the club’s under-21 team by 2016. Mount scored ten goals in 30 games in the club’s victorious 2016–17 U18 Premier League campaign. He also won two FA Youth Cups, the UEFA Youth League, and Chelsea Academy Player of the Year by 2017.

After getting promoted to the first team, the club decided to send him on loan. Mount joined Dutch Eredivisie club Vitesse on 24th July 2017 on a season-long loan. He made his first-team debut on 26th August as a 77th-minute substitute during Vitesse’s 2–1 home defeat against AZ. The following month, he was given his first start in Vitesse’s KNVB Cup first-round defeat away to fifth-tier team Swift, playing the full 90 minutes of the 0–0 draw, which Swift won in a penalty shoot-out. He scored his first goal for Vitesse on 1st October in the 76th minute of a 1–1 home draw with Utrecht. Mount went on to appear in the Eredivisie Team of the Year and won Vitesse Player of the Year.

He was again sent on loan to another club in the following season. This time it was to the Championship club Derby County. He scored a 60th-minute equaliser on his debut for Derby on 3rd August 2018, during a 2–1 away victory over Reading.

After two successive loans, the club made him permanent with the first team. On 15th July 2019, Mount signed a new five-year contract with Chelsea. He made his competitive debut for Chelsea on 11th August 2019 in a 0–4 away defeat to Manchester United in the Premier League. A week later, he scored his first Chelsea goal against Leicester City during Frank Lampard’s home debut as manager at Stamford Bridge, a 1–1 draw.

Mason Mount has already established himself as one of the best young players. After winning the Champions League last season at the age of 22 under Thomas Tuchel, he cemented his position in Chelsea. Also, he impressed Gareth Southgate, the manager of the England National Team.

Chelsea boss Tuchel has always praised him. He said: “He’s outstanding, to play so consistently at this level is special.” John Terry has already predicted that he will be the future captain of Chelsea and England.
