Mason Mount hasn’t been in great form for the last couple of months – but you wouldn’t know it from looking at his stats.
Previously playing brilliantly but perhaps not getting the numbers he deserved, the midfielder has now seen things reversed.
20. Mason Mount has amassed 20 G+A (8G, 12A) across all competitions this season.

Today’s assist, a whipped cross from the right, makes it 8 for the season, to add to his 8 goals.
His critics have tried to detract from his numbers in the past by getting technical and saying he needed more open play assists (as though his excellent set piece delivery is a bad thing). Well he’s now got two of those in a week. Is anyone complaining about that?
It seems like he’s rounding back into form, and just in time. After this game we have a couple of weeks without a club game, then things get really serious, with the Champions League and FA Cup reaching their final stages, and the top 4 battle still very much alive.
