Bookmakers have cut odds on Chelsea starlet Mason Mount getting a spot in England’s initial 23-man Euro 2020 squad.
Having been priced at 15/2 final week, now the 20-year-old is currently only 7/2. That places him only behind Jack Grealish (2/1), who at the weekend expanded his unwanted record of successive Premier League declines as a participant.
Having played under Frank Lampard’s stewardship on loan at Derby County, Mount is currently enjoying lots of game-time today the set have been shrouded in the blue colours of Chelsea.
The youngster scored a hard-fought purpose in the first minute of the Premier League home introduction in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Leicester City on Sunday.
Mount was a key player for Derby past season, scoring 11 days from midfield. That campaign has earned him a complete England call-up and lots are hoping him to drive himself to Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 plans this season.
Together with Chelsea in the mercy of a transport ban, manager Frank Lampard is likely to entrust his younger gamers and he speeds Mount quite highly.
Teammates Ross Barkley (5/6) along with Ruben Loftus-Cheek (5/6) will also be fancied to make the squad, though the latter will have ground to make up after his lengthy injury lay-off.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”Rifling his Super Cup punishment to the top corner and then hounding the Leicester defence to bag his first senior goal at Stamford Bridge, Mason Mount certainly isn’t short of optimism.
“Lampard is already a large fan of Mount from his time at Derby, and should he keep repaying him such as he did Sunday, the 7/2 on a Euro 2020 spot could look a enormous price come the close of the year”
