The 22-year-old starred in midfield and managed to outperform the experienced duo of Modric and Toni Kroos.

It saw the former approach Mount at full-time with a message of: "Mason Mount. Good luck in the final," before giving him a hug.

Mount, who grew up studying footage of the Ballon d'Or winner, was incredibly appreciative and responded with: "Thank you, thank you."

While Mount and Modric were respectful with one another, the England international threw barbs at Kroos following the full-time whistle.

World Cup winner Kroos was asked who he believed the toughest player at Chelsea was earlier in the week.

"The most difficult player to face at Chelsea? No player has ever taken my sleep in 15 years." Kroos said. "They play well as a team but I can't tell you a name."

In his post-match interview with CBS Sports, Mount made sure to address those comments with: "I saw one of their players [Kroos] saying he doesn't lose sleep over any of our players. Maybe he should lose sleep over us as a team."

He then turned his attention to the Blues' campaign, which started off poorly and saw Frank Lampard sacked in January.

Despite that, Thomas Tuchel's arrival has buoyed the squad who now have two shots at silverware this season, with an FA Cup final against Leicester City to come as well.

"I can't put it into words at the moment," he explained.

"But it was a great performance tonight, it was a tough, tough game.

"You know what they're like, they're going to come and they're going to give it everything.

"I thought we were brilliant, we worked hard. We probably should have had about five.

"I should have had one about 20 minutes before I scored.

"The most important thing is that we won tonight. But it's not over, there's one more game left."
