Former Manchester United forward, Louis Saha has criticised Mason Mount for his poor form for the club, accusing him of being ‘nowhere to be seen’.

Mount joined the Red Devils for an initial £55m in the summer, but the story hasn’t quite panned out how as he would have expected.

In his first six games for Erik ten Hag’s side, Mount has had very little influence in terms of attacking contributions, picking up just one assist— which came in the 3-0 Carabao Cup win against Crystal Palace.

Speaking to King Casino Bonus, Saha said: “Manchester United are relying on one or two players to create, and I haven’t seen enough of Mount yet.

“His creativity is nowhere to be seen. I didn’t see any positive runs from him against Brentford. His timing is off, too, and he can’t make chances by playing like this.

“I hope that the players find their groove, and once they do, they’ll be hard to play against. They have the energy, and when players like Bruno Fernandes start making those passes, I’ll be more confident in Man Utd.

“I think Mount can be a lot better, but I’d say the fee was too much. I think Chelsea was playing a game with the fee, even if the market is very competitive and a lot of players have moved for similar fees.

“I’d say, based on what we’ve seen, Mount isn’t performing and I’ve seen Casemiro play more offensively than Mount. That’s a crazy thing to say, but it’s true.”
