Chelsea took another step towards the FA Cup title this Saturday (19), also playing away from home after beating Middlesbrough 2-0. The positive result was the decisive participation of Mason Mount, who provided two assists for goals scored by Ziyech and Lukaku. After the match, the 23-year-old spoke about the tough past weeks at the club, as well as revealing his ambition for the national title.
, We really have this winning mentality within the group. Any competition, any sport, we always want to win and we will continue to do so. It’s been a tough two weeks, but for us as a team we are just focused and ready to play. Always trying to get Chelsea on the road to victory? Expressing desire shortly afterwards, said Mount.
, The truth is that we are very hungry for a national title and we just have to keep doing what we are doing. We know we need to fix a few things, but we’re on a good track so far. We already had our final at Wembley this season and we lost, so are we hungry to win the semi-finals to be there again? Mount recalled the loss to Liverpool in the League Cup final.
In recent weeks, the atmosphere inside Chelsea has been shaken by UK government restrictions on club owner Roman Abramovich. Accused of being one of the oligarchs who supported Vladimir Putin’s Russian government, Abramovich had his accounts blocked and this directly impacted Chelsea, which can no longer conduct financial transactions.
Despite all the uncertainties off the field, the team has a long way to go to victory which has lasted for six matches. The team will now return to the field on 2 April when they host Brentford at Stamford Bridge for the 31st round of the Premier League.
