Chelsea took another step towards the FA Cup title on Saturday (19), with a 2-0 victory over Middlesbrough, even playing away from home. The positive result had a decisive participation from Mason Mount, who provided assists for the two goals scored by Ziyech and Lukaku. After the match, the 23-year-old spoke about his recent difficult weeks at the club, as well as revealing his ambition to win the national title.
? We really have that winning mentality within the group. In any competition and any match, we always want to win and we will continue to do so. It’s been two tough weeks, but for us as a team we are just focused and ready to play. Are you always trying to lead Chelsea to winning ways? Said Mount, revealing the desire shortly thereafter.
? The truth is that we are very hungry for a national title and we just need to keep doing what we’re doing. We know we need to fix a few things, but we’re on a good path so far. We’ve already had a final at Wembley this season and lost, so are we hungry to win the semi-final to get there again? Recalling the defeat to Liverpool in the League Cup final, Mount said.
In recent weeks, the atmosphere inside Chelsea has been shaken by the sanctions imposed by the UK government on Roman Abramovich, the club’s owner. Abramovich was accused of being one of the oligarchs who support Vladimir Putin’s Russian government, Abramovich’s accounts were blocked which directly affected Chelsea, which could no longer conduct financial transactions.
Even with all the uncertainty off the field, the team is following a long six-game winning streak. The team will now return to the field only on April 2, when they host Brentford, at Stamford Bridge, for the 31st round of the Premier League.
