Chelsea matchwinner Giroud: Mount improving every day

Chelsea matchwinner Olivier Giroud heaped praise on Mason Mount after victory at Rennes last night.

Mount produced another midfield performance that combined industry with innovation and it was the 21-year-old's glorious pass that teed up Callum Hudson-Odoi for the opener.

"He's in a very good run," Giroud said of Mount. "He's settled well now in this midfield three, he's enjoying himself and improving every single day.

"I'm happy for him because again he was decisive with his assist for Callum.

"We are all happy to have this guy in the team and in the dressing room."
