1. MASON MOUNT (8.0)

Well, it’s Monday, which is a good reason already to celebrate Mason Mount. Add in his match-winning performance from the weekend, and it is indeed a fantastic Mason Mount Monday: a Man of the Match Mason Mount Monday.

Mmmmmmmmmm, so good!

Online culture being what it is, there’s always going to be a subset of people who will hate on anyone, everyone. And then there’s going to be another subset of people who then worry about those opinions, thus giving them the number one thing they crave, attention and legitimacy — when ignoring them would be literally the easiest thing to do.

Here’s what I say. Don’t worry about what other randoms are shouting into the void. Champion your man. Don’t worry about their noise; make your own.

2. CALLUM HUDSON-ODOI (7.3)

Here’s a telling stat I just saw scroll by: seven of Chelsea’s last eight goals in all competitions have come with Hudson-Odoi on the pitch (with Callum himself chipping in with 2 goals and 2 assists). Considering that he has only played 256 of the 450 minutes (5 games) during that span, it surely speaks volumes of his ability to positively affect games.

Might we see him get just his third Premier League start on Tuesday against Leicester City?

3. THIAGO SILVA (6.7)

A clean sheet for The Monster.
