Mason Mount's individual highlights for Chelsea vs Liverpool have proven he is currently their most important player.
The Blues ran out 1-0 winners at Anfield and it was Mount's solo effort in the first half that made the difference.

He got his reward in the 42nd minute, when he shimmied away from Fabinho and rifled past Alisson.
Fans have reacted to Mount's performance and they think he could be on his way to become on of the Premier League's best midfielders.
Chelsea spent hundreds of millions on players like Ziyech, Werner and Havertz..

Mount spoke to Sky Sports following the game and he commented on how important it is for Chelsea to win these big games.
The England international explained: "Where the season is at the moment, it's very tight in the top four and we wanna keep pushing. We're in and around it and these big games we need to win.
"I think we've been on a good run, keeping clean sheets, being good defensively but we've not been scoring enough.
"We've probably not made enough chances recently so tonight to get the goal, maybe we could've had a couple of more, but it was very good to score."
Thomas Tuchel's side have now moved into the Champions League places and sit on 50 points.
Liverpool, meanwhile, have lost five games in a row at home for the first time in history and are down in seventh.
