After impressive loan spells at Vitesse Arnhem and Derby County, Mount was finally given a chance at Chelsea under Frank Lampard following the club's transfer ban.
He's since gone on to become a crucial player for club and country, winning Chelsea's Player of the Year award last term and playing an integral role in the Blues' Champions League triumph over Manchester City in Porto.
Mount has made massive improvements to continually produce in the biggest games, completely abolishing the myth that he was benefiting from favouritism on the part of Lampard and Gareth Southgate.
And clearly the 22-year-old has been putting in some serious work in the gym. He posted a picture a shirtless picture of him training ahead of his return to Chelsea and even his best mate Declan Rice was wondering whether it was photoshopped.
"Teach me how to edit please bro??" Rice wrote, while Rio Ferdinand joked Mount had been "over eating".
Rice has evidently gained a whole lot of muscle in his arms, shoulders and back which has no doubt aided his performance.
Go back two years to Mount's first foray into the Chelsea side, he appeared scrawny and looked like he needed to beef up.
The very best players like Cristiano Ronaldo went above and beyond to get to the top and Mount is following that formula.
"He's always doing extra, always at the gym, doing everything he can to better himself," Chelsea and England teammate Ben Chilwell said in April.
"With the natural talent that he has, the work rate, the sky is the limit for him.
"If he keeps doing what he does; scoring, assisting, and working hard away from the training ground - which I know he does - he will be a great player for Chelsea and England for a long time."
