Mason Mount: first Chelsea goal is 'what dreams are made of'

English midfielder takes to social media to describe emotions after netting for first time in Premier League

Mason Mount admitted that his first Premier League goal for Chelsea is "what dreams are made of".

The 20 year old netted the opening goal in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Leicester City at Stamford Bridge.

It capped the midfielder's rapid rise at the Europa League champions, having shone in pre-season to impress new manager Frank Lampard.

He had played under Lampard on loan at Derby County last season, with Lampard taking over as Chelsea manager from Maurizio Sarri in July.

Mount was thrilled with his milestone moment and wrote on Twitter: "Unbelievable feeling to score my first goal for @ChelseaFC on my home debut. What dreams are made of!"

Despite the personal joy, Mount added he shared the frustration of his manager and teammates that Leicester had been able to hit back in the second half to deny the club a first win of the campaign having lost 4-0 at Manchester United last weekend.

"Shame to come away with just a point but we'll keep working and come back stronger."

Chelsea are next in action at Norwich City on Saturday.
