Chelsea hero Nevin backing Mount, James for big futures

Chelsea hero Pat Nevin has tipped bright futures for Mason Mount and Reece James.

Nevin has been impressed with the pair of academy graduates after they enjoyed breakthrough seasons in the Chelsea first-team.

"Mason Mount looked like another who could skip off with the award early on and maybe still will," Nevin wrote on the club's website.

"One thing is very likely, if he doesn't win it this season, it will not be long before he does. He is such a top player, so versatile and so loved by the Chelsea fans.

"Reece James joins him on the list of future winners I reckon even if this season might be a tad early for our rampaging right-back."
