What did Lampard say?
Speaking after Everton’s stalemate with Watford, Lampard was quizzed about Chelsea’s victory over Leeds United and told beIN Sports:‘It was useful, it was.
‘I’ll send him [Mason Mount] a message later of thanks.
Those things are out of your hands but Mason’s a fantastic player and I’m pleased for him that he’s getting those numbers because he is a player of such a high level and those numbers reflect it.
‘It’s brilliant for him and Chelsea did us a favor getting that result, but we have to make sure we do our own thing to get this over the line.’
Frank Lampard first worked for Mason Mount when the Chelsea Academy graduate was on loan at Derby County and later Chelsea.

Frank Lampard seems to turn things around at the Toffees after gain points in four out of five matches including beating Chelsea and Leicester City before their goalless draw with Watford.
Lampard added: ‘There is work to be done but if you look at our recent results we have put ourselves in a decent position.
‘There were not enough clear chances. But if you are not at your best you need to make sure you pick up a point. That is not something we’ve done often enough this season.
‘Watford had players playing with something to lose. They had nothing on the game and sometimes that can be difficult to come against. They gave us a game.’
