Schwarzer backs Mount to have a big impact in the PL
Mark Schwarzer has backed Mason Mount and James Maddison to have a big impact in the Premier League and with England as the midfield duo continue to excel at the start of the 2019-20 season.
Both players were called up to the Three Lions squad for the Euro 2020 qualifying fixtures against Czech Republic and Bulgaria, with Leicester City star Maddison unfortunately having to withdraw through illness as he looked to win his first cap.
Mount, meanwhile, made his debut during the last international break and, having made an impressive start to the new campaign with Chelsea, former Blues goalkeeper Schwarzer is tipping the 20-year-old to have an "amazing future".
"I think Mount has done really well so far," Optus Sport expert Schwarzer told Goal. "He has been exciting to watch. He is a big talent, he played very well in the Championship last season under Frank [Lampard] so he knows him really well.
"I like so much about him. The biggest thing is that movement, dropping the shoulder, taking on a player and caressing the ball. His link-up play is very good. His understanding with Tammy Abraham is very good. I like his evolution.
"It will be interesting to see what he is like when more experienced players come into the team like Willian and Pedro, if there’s more consistency and how he links up with them. I think that will be interesting. He has an amazing future. I think everyone thinks that."
