2 facts that suggest Mount may end up scoring more goals this season despite his poor start

Mason Mount is just one of the many attacking players in the Chelsea first-team squad who have had a poor start to the 2021-2022 season.

The 22 years old English midfielder has not scored a single goal in 9 appearances for Chelsea in all competition this season. His only attacking contribution at club level this season is the single assist he got against an understrength Arsenal side almost two months ago.

It is already being suggested by a section of the English media that the Chelsea academy graduate is suffering from burnout after three seasons of top-level performances for club and country. 

A detailed look at Mount's professional football career, though, suggests that he will still come good for chelsea this season despite his poor start.
