Mason Mount has vowed to fill the void left by Chelsea’s striker crisis by breaking the longest drought of his career. The 4-0 win against Malmo on Wednesday was the 25th successive game for club and country in which the midfielder has failed to find the back of the net.

It is a run that stretches back to the goal he scored against Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge on May 5.

Goals have been at something of a premium for Chelsea generally this season, their top-of-the-table position secured with just 16 of them, six more than second-placed Liverpool.

Now after the club’s two main strikers both limped out of action before half-time on Wednesday – Romelu Lukaku with an ankle knock; Timo Werner having pulled a hamstring – there is an even greater impetus on the support payers to step up to the plate.

“You go through little stages and for me personally I’m not someone who is going to worry massively about it,” Mount said.

“I’m still getting in the right areas but it’s just not falling to me, so I’m not just getting any chances.

“Hopefully when that first one goes in, the floodgates will open and I’ll get a few more after that.

“Obviously the way we play we are going to get people in the box, create chances and it’s about time I get on the score sheet for once!”

Jorginho, with two penalties, Andreas Christensen, with his first goal at the club he signed for eight years ago, and Kai Havertz treated Chelsea fans to their first four-goal haul at Stamford Bridge since Thomas Tuchel took over nine months ago

Havertz’s goal was particularly timely as he had not scored for Chelsea since August.

“Kai getting his goal, that’s good for him,” Mount continued.

“Getting goals from all areas is a big thing for us, a big positive and shows we can be dangerous from different parts of the team, we can be dangerous from set-pieces.”

Games, meanwhile, are coming thick and fast and almost as soon as the European midweek calendar ends before Christmas, FIFA are looking to schedule in the Club World Cup in the UAE during the early part of 2002.

“Of course, when you win the Champions League, you have more opportunities to win more trophies and you want to take advantage of that,” Mount said.

“We’re a club which wants to win silverware.

“We want to win the Champions League, we achieved that last season and now we want to be champions of the world to go with the Super Cup.

“We’re ready for that. We’re raring to go.

“That first was such a special one and when you get a taste of winning, you want to win more and more and we have the opportunity to win more trophies this season and we’re going to give our all to do that.”
