Paul Scholes expects Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount to become “just like” Frank Lampard by “winning games” for the Premier League side.
The Blues made it back-to-back defeats as they followed up their 1-0 loss to Everton at the weekend with another one as Wolves beat them 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Chelsea struggled to create against Wolves but Scholes reckons Mount can become their modern-day Lampard if given enough time.

“I think the problem that they have got is creativity,” Scholes told Amazon Prime. “Looking at the last two games, they have hardly created a chance.
“I think they have got the players, but they are young players and it is going to take them a bit of time.
“Mason Mount, every time I see him I am really impressed with him. I think he could become like a Frank Lampard. I think he has got the ability and the technique to really win games for Chelsea.
“Mason has got his manager, there, to fall back on and has nobody better to learn from. He should be winning games for Chelsea.
“In years to come, I think he will score a lot of goals for Chelsea, just like Frank.”
