Mason Mount Reveals Crucial Change Graham Potter Has Brought to His Game Amid Surge in Form. Chelsea forward Mason Mount has revealed how Graham Potter has impacted his game, allowing him to score more goals and contribute to the team’s performance.
The 23-year-old was underwhelming at the start of the season under Thomas Tuchel, failing to register a goal or an assist in seven matches under the German.
However, since Potter was appointed, Mount has improved significantly, getting seven goal contributions in ten matches under the Englishman, according to Sky Sports.
Mount’s importance to England has grown too, and he is expected to be the first name on the team selection expected to be named soon by manager Gareth Southgate. He started for England in the Euro 2020 final last year.
Mount on Potter’s impact
According to Football London, Mount said Potter gave him the freedom to influence the game.
“[The biggest thing has been] Feeling free and being able to move and make the box and score goals. That’s what I want to do as a midfielder and an attacker being able to influence the game.”

“He’s been very clear in the way he wants to play, and for us to adapt to that and learn very quickly, it’s tough, and it can be difficult, but you can see with the performances that we’ve been scoring goals and keeping clean sheets.”
Mount was one of the most important players under Tuchel, scoring 19 goals and providing 19 assists in 89 games.
