Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount admits it is nice to be appreciated by his managers.

Mount is sometimes criticized as a teacher's pet by fans, but his club and national team managers say his quality and work ethic are the reasons he is a regular pick for Chelsea and England.

For his part, Mount wants to continue to work hard and show why the managers are showing faith in his abilities.

He told reporters: "It obviously means a lot to me to have two managers that trust me and are willing to put me in big games and I'd always be ready for any opportunity I get.

"I obviously worked under him [Lampard] at Derby and now I come in at Chelsea and I haven't seen too much of a change in him.

"He's a young manager and as players we learn a lot off him.

"He's been there, he's done it in the game, so as players we can speak to him and learn about experiences he's been through and it helps us as players."
