Mason Mount made his 100th Premier League appearance for the Blues against Arsenal

It seems like only yesterday since Mount was marking his home debut in the English top flight with a goal against Leicester City; now he has a huge banner in his honour at Stamford Bridge, which was given another airing ahead of our latest Premier League fixture, when he brought up his century of Premier League appearances.

He was only 23 years and 100 days old when the game took place, but that’s still only enough to make him the fourth-youngest player to reach this milestone as a Blue. Read on to find out what he and the three men above him on the list had achieved by this stage of their Premier League journey…

After impressing on loan at Derby County under Frank Lampard, Mount was given his big chance for the Blues when Super Frank took the reins in the summer of 2019. He hasn’t looked back since. With 23 goals and 19 assists since then, he has been involved in more goals than any other English player in their first 100 Premier League games for the Blues.

His status as a key player was almost immediate, and at the end of his first campaign he confirmed as much by scoring a wonderful free-kick on the final day against Wolves to help seal Champions League qualification. He ended up making 53 appearances in all competitions, a record for a Chelsea Academy graduate.

Although some of his more noteworthy achievements have come in the cup competitions – he’s scored in a semi-final in each of his three seasons in the first team, across the FA Cup and Europe, as well as supplying the assist for the winner in last season’s Champions League final win – there have been other Premier League highlights.
