Aston Villa striker Tammy Abraham has praised his Chelsea teammate Mason Mount after he helped Derby County progress to the play-off final where the pair will face off.
Abraham helped send Villa to Wembley on Tuesday night by converting the winning penalty in the shoot-out against West Brom, but last night it was Mount’s turn to shine.
Posting a short replay of the midfielder’s excellent finish to his Instagram story included a series of clapping emojis.
Stuart Dallas looked to have put the tie beyond doubt when he reacted quickest to a loose ball in the Derby box but a goal from substitute Jack Marriott with his first touch after coming on dragged them back into contention on the stroke of half-time.
Mount then levelled the tie just seconds after the restart before Harry Wilson edged the Rams in front for the first time from the spot after Liam Cooper had needlessly fouled Mason Bennett.
Leeds came back soon after, however, and Dallas levelled the tie with a brilliant second but four minutes from time Marriott etched his name into Derby folk-law when he chipped in the winning goal to spark jubilant scenes in the away end.
Chelsea fans will be absolutely buzzing for this final now.
John Terry and Frank Lampard in either dug out and three of their rising stars almost certain to start in Mount, Abraham and Fikayo Tomori.
They will also surely love this post from their highly-rated striker.
