Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount isn’t convinced he deserved the Man of the Match award for his display in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Dinamo Zagreb.

According to Mount, Chelsea teammate Denis Zakaria deserved to be named the Man of the Match.

“We changed the formation a little bit,” Mount said. “It allowed me to drift and connect the midfield, and get forward as well. I felt good. It was a nice position for me.

“When I look at a game the negatives stick out in my head, and I gave the ball away too much. That’s how I am, that’s what I think about after the game, but I did some good bits as well, so I’ll take it.

“The lads have been battering me the last couple of games I’ve got man of the match as they don’t think I deserved it, but today I don’t think I deserve it!

“Denis Zakaria came in and was unbelievable. He deserves man of the match more than me, and he scored as well!

“To step up after not playing, and starting the game, was brilliant. I’m very happy for him to get this opportunity and to do so well.”
