Ross Barkley has heaped praise on Mason Mount and is tipping his Chelsea FC team-mate to make the England squad for Euro 2020.

The 20-year-old has been called up to Gareth Southgate’s squad for England’s Euro 2020 qualifiers after having made a solid start to the new season under Frank Lampard at Chelsea FC.

Mount has started all four of Chelsea FC’s Premier League games so far this season and has scored two goals for the west London side.

The youngster returned to Chelsea FC this summer after enjoying a successful loan spell at Derby County under Frank Lampard last term.

Barkley has been training alongside Mount for Chelsea FC this season and he is tipping the youngster to make it into the England squad for next summer’s tournament.

Speaking in an interview quoted by the Evening Standard, Barkley said: “I believe he will be in the squad 100 per cent when it comes to it.

“Then it is down to him but I believe he will be [in the team] because of how good he is and the things I have seen this season.

“The way he arrives in the box and gets shots away early, it is similar to Lamps. He has a really good technique with how he finishes as well. He is a brilliant player.

“He is hungry to improve, hungry to score and hungry to help the team in any way he can, if it is out on the left, in the No10 or in a midfield three.”

Both Mount and Barkley will be hoping to feature for Chelsea FC when the Blues return to Premier League action after the international break with a trip to Wolves on Saturday 14 September.

The Blues have only taken five points from their opening four Premier League games under Lampard this season, and have only picked up one win so far.
