'Mount has biggest potential of all Chelsea players' - Kante praises England ace after win over Spurs

The Frenchman was beaming in his assessment of a Stamford Bridge colleague after a crucial victory at Tottenham over the weekend

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is the player with the most potential at the club, according to N'Golo Kante.

Mount returned to Stamford Bridge this summer after a successful loan spell at Derby, reuniting with Frank Lampard in the process, who oversaw his rise to prominence at Pride Park before succeeding Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea's new head coach in July.

Lampard wasted no time in thrusting Mount into the senior fold, as he set about bringing through a number of the club's academy stars while the Blues served a FIFA-imposed transfer ban.
