The Blues ran out 1-0 winners in their first leg clash thanks to Olivier Giroud's acrobatic effort, but the real star of the show was Mount.
Despite getting booked within seconds, the 22-year-old never stopped running and looked a menace going forward.
He was involved in the tussle prior to Giroud's goal and helped bring the best out of his teammates.
Mount was replaced by N'Golo Kante in the 74th minute and he departed as a standout performer.
A booking means he'll miss the second leg on March 17 and it'll be a huge blow.
Fans have reacted to Mount's performance and they believe he has taken his game to a new level under Thomas Tuchel.
He might actually be generational uno. This level of consistency at that age is outrageous.

That run and pass to Werner man. Fantastic. Should have had an assist today in the first half too.

People we're slandering him and I never understood it. I've never seen this man put less than a 7/10 in a Chelsea shirt https://t.co/x1Yk8wbj4W

They said he wouldn't get a single game after Chelsea signed Kai Havertz. They said he only played because he was Lampard's son. They said he would be benched by Tuchel.
Chelsea's best and most consistent player of the season so far! :fire: @masonmount_10 ' #CFC ' #UCL ' #ATMCHE pic.twitter.com/94DN57YWxl

For Frank Lampard, Gareth Southgate and Thomas Tuchel to all have a bunch of attacking midfield options and conclude "Mason Mount, he's my guy", our priors probably shouldn't be that they're wrong.- Grace Robertson :flag_white:️⚧️ (@GraceOnFootball) February 23, 2021
