Mount won't let "hype" get to Gilmour

Mason Mount doesn't think Gilmour will get distracted by the "hype" he is been receiving after back-to-back MOTM performances against Liverpool and Everton and vows he won't let the hype get to him.

"He is very grounded," Mount, who has established himself as a first-team fixture in Frank Lampard’s side this season, said at Stamford Bridge after the win over Everton. "He has got a very, very good family around him and he is a very screwed-on boy so that won’t get to him at all.

"I won’t let it get to him as well, I’ll keep him grounded! No, he’ll be fine.

"I’m not surprised [by his performances]. I know what he is as a player, as a boy. I am very close to him so I know what character he has. I had no doubts about him coming in, stepping up and performing like the way he has in the last two games.

"I have massive confidence in him and he shows it when he comes out onto the pitch. The young players coming through, they are going to have these challenges. It is obviously a big achievement to make it into the first team, to start a game at home at Stamford Bridge.

"The way my debut went here was very good. I scored but Billy has stepped up and done brilliantly. He’s come into the team, been dominant, been confident on the ball and that’s what you want."
