Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admits to having been left pleasantly surprised by the performance levels of Mason Mount this season.

“He was brilliant for me at Derby. I did not expect this level but he is improving daily.”

He added: “It is great for the club and a long time coming.

“The work is done in the academy. The mentality is great. They want to play for this club. At the moment they are earning it and setting a level for others.

“I have complete confidence in the lads. They are there on merit. Whatever game they take it on board and long may it continue.”

Victory over the Seagulls on Saturday was Lampard’s first in the Premier League as Chelsea manager.

The Blues manager added: “We needed the win.

“We haven't had a 90-minute game where we've controlled it enough. The only disappointment is we didn't have more goals. A clean sheet as well. It is good for the confidence of everyone.

“We had a lot of shots first half. But weak finishing and a bit of bad luck. You do start to wonder but you have to remain confident it will come and it did.”
