Chelsea legend Joe Cole: Mount a manager's dream

Chelsea legend Joe Cole has hailed Mason Mount's 'natural ability' after his goal against Porto in the Champions League.

Mount, 22, pulled off a terrific turn before scoring the opening goal in the 2-0 away victory.

Cole told BT Sport about Mount: He said: "He's a manager's dream, he has the natural ability to impact a game.

"He does the tactics to a 'T' off the ball, in the difficult spell just before Tuchel came in, he stood up, he is a leader."

The Blues now have a commanding lead heading into the quarter-final second leg, which will take place in Seville next week.
