A compilation of Mason Mount's debut for Man Utd against Leeds is going viral

A compilation of Mason Mount's debut for Man Utd against Leeds is going viral

Mason Mount made his first start for Manchester United in their pre-season clash against Leeds on Wednesday afternoon.

A compilation of Mason Mount's highly-anticipated debut for Manchester United in their pre-season friendly against Leeds has emerged, with fans having their say on his performance.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who joined United from boyhood club Chelsea last week for a reported £55 million plus add-ons, was handed his first minutes by Erik ten Hag on Wednesday afternoon.

Wearing the iconic number seven shirt, Mount made a lively start, playing a number of trademark diagonal through balls to the likes of Amad and Hannibal Mejbri, who both impressed at the Ullevaal Stadium in Norway.

Mount, however, overcooked a number of passes throughout his 45-minute cameo against Daniel Farke's side, leading many Chelsea supporters to post short clips of those unfortunate moments on Twitter.

You can watch the compilation of his performance in Oslo below.

Ultimately, the midfield trio of Mount, Mejbri and Mainoo looked dangerous in spells against Leeds, although there was a very mixed reaction from supporters regarding Mount's debut performance.

One said: "Kobbie Mainoo. A real talent that will look to have a role this season upcoming. Mason Mount looked sharp on his debut too," while another wrote: "Not even looking good against a Championship team."

A third commented: "Missed an offside chance, overhit an indirect free kick, and missed Sancho with a one touch pass. Three mistakes that’ll define a half where he was absolutely immaculate."

A fourth added: "He is making some very nice passes and his pressing is good. Should have scored that chip."

Ahead of kick-off, manager Erik ten Hag explained what Mount will bring to the United set-up in the coming months.

“I am sure he will contribute to the success of Manchester United because he is a quality player,” he told MUTV.

“In midfield you have to attack but you also have to defend. He will bring dynamic into our game. We need more dynamic in that midfield department.”


Ten Hag is said to have played a crucial role in the deal happening, with Mount being 'wowed' by his in-depth knowledge and appreciation for the game.

In fact, during those talks, United's backroom and recruitment teams pulled together footage showing how Mount's playing style and Ten Hag's key principles match, according to Sky Sports.

They also showcased how Mount could influence United's midfield in the coming months, as well as areas he can improve under the guidance of Ten Hag.
