Chelsea duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mason Mount had a slow start to the season, but are now in top form for the club.

Mount has now provided five assists in 12 games across all competitions for the Blues this season, after a very slow start to the season.

For Aubameyang, the 33-year-old has scored in three consecutive games for Chelsea.

Aubameyang has admitted he loves playing alongside Mount.

“It is always nice to play with players like Mason. I think we have a great team. I am happy to be here.”

Mason Mount meanwhile  was named man of the match by UEFA despite playing just 45 minutes against AC Milan, and the 23-year-old was surprised about it.

He said: “I thought I played well to get the penalty and the assist for the other goal but I was surprised to be given man of the match [having only played one half].”
