The midfielder is a central figure of Frank Lampard’s rising at Chelsea and only Tammy Abraham has scored more than Mount this season. Chelsea dominated the second half at Stamford Bridge against Liverpool in their Premier League game last weekend but conceded twice from set-pieces in the first half.
“We are going through a spell when we are getting little bits here and there wrong and we are getting punished for it,” said Mount. “I think we have always got to stay positive.
“We are confident straight after the game, concentrating now on our next two games at home and wanting to win them. They are difficult games, but I think once you get that first home win and get that energy building, then surely we can bring that on.
“I think the fans watching saw how much we put into the game, how hard we worked throughout the whole game. They apparently feel as much as us that we could probably get something from the game at the end.
“It could easily have been a draw if we dent a goal. They are watching the game and can see how much we are running, and want to win the game and want to play for the badge. So, yes, that home win is due and we need to focus on that and hopefully, in the next game, we can do that.
“Of course [we need to win more at home], if you look at the games we have had we can take positives from every game we have had. We need to win games at home, that’s a big focus.”
One of the best teams
Mount took some comfort from Chelsea’s showing after the interval against Liverpool, which held on to maintain its 100 percent start to the top-flight season. “They are one of the best teams in the league and, in the second half, I felt like we dominated it,” he said.
Frank Lampard talks losing to Liverpool and injury concerns-
“They had chances. Look at the team they have got and they are always going to create chances, but I thought overall in the second half we were very aggressive. We had chances of our own and we could have scored. We look back at the second-half production and take a lot of positives from it.
‘I think Liverpool is a very very good side and they started the game well from two set-pieces which you can’t do very much from that with their quality. I thought they didn’t create much in open play.
‘It happened twice so that’s something we will look at and we have been looking at. We need to keep working on it.
