Chelsea matchwinner Mount reveals Zouma inspiration behind Liverpool goal celebration

Mason Mount has revealed Chelsea teammate Kurt Zouma was behind his unique celebration against Liverpool.

The England playmaker scored the only goal as Chelsea moved into fourth-place with a huge win at Anfield.

And Mount revealed Zouma's love of anime cartoons was behind his celebration.

"We take a lot of flights to away games and me and Chilly [Chilwell] sit behind Kurt Zouma in the plane and he's always watching anime cartoons," he told Sky Sports.

"We always watch it from behind him so that was the celebration.

"I said to Chilly, if I score or he scores then we have to do it.

"Obviously I scored today and we done it and it was for Zouma as well."
