Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has said that Chelsea’s Mason Mount is one player who could cause his side problems on Sunday, saying the Englishman is a “very exciting prospect”.
Mount hobbled off with an ankle injury in his side’s 1-0 Champions League defeat to Valencia on Tuesday, but Blues boss Frank Lampard said in his press conference that there is a chance he could feature in the weekend’s clash.
Mount has scored three goals in seven appearances in all competitions so far this season and, speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Sunday’s meeting, Henderson added that Lampard’s side are improving.
Frank’s done very good,” the midfielder said. “I think the way they’re playing is very good. They’ve got young kids but they’re top players, and certainly will be in the future.
“They’ve got huge potential with the likes of Mason already training for England, I can see he’s got the right mentality to play football. Technically he’s very good.
“Everyone can see that he’s hungry to be a very good player and is a very exciting prospect. He’s started the season very well along with Tammy [Abraham].
“They haven’t had a couple of results go their way, with the Sheffield United game and Valencia, but in terms of the way they’re playing I can definitely see an improvement.”
Liverpool are five points clear at the top of the Premier League table going into the weekend’s clash, with Chelsea seventh on eight points.
