"He may be hard on himself because any striker the level that he is who is worth their salt ... will be hard on themselves," Lampard told reporters after the match.

"That's how you get to the top with the desire to score goals. I was happy when he gets on and gets into the positions to score goals, particularly the one that went wide as that's where I have seen him score so many goals in his career so far. He will score those in future.

"I have a lot of conversations with Mason. I think he can get a lot more goals from midfield and at Derby, he got goals that year," Lampard said of the 2018-19 season when he coached Mount at Pride Park.

"I think there was a feeling even then that he could get more. I am always on him about it and it was big in my game.

"I have alluded to it that my goalscoring came into my game when I was 25 or 26 at Chelsea. I don't want to measure Mason against myself but I just understand that you develop it. I understand that he offers so much on and off the ball for us.

"My feeling is that he needs to get in the 18-yard box more. There are times when we have the ball wide and he can be higher up the pitch in the box. Those are things that he can work on and develop. As he gets older, he will come to understand the moments that he can get in there.

"Look at him tonight; he got in there a lot of times. If you keep getting in there through numbers and quality with the smartness of his play, then he will get chances and score more goals.

"That's why I am really happy for him today because to score that type of goal is a big deal for him, rather than the 25-yard one last week.

"It is goals in the box where Mason can add to [his game]. I want to think that Mason Mount will be a player of the highest level in all sense and get 10 to 15 goals a season."

Kakuta: The forgotten Chelsea wonderkid who could have been a star for Lampard .
Of all the talents unable to take the next step at the Bridge, none was hyped up more than the ex-France youth over whom Chelsea risked a transfer ban , but ultimately disposed of without generating any headlines. Still only 29, Kakuta’s career has been remarkably nomadic. Managed by Clarence Seedorf, Manuel Pellegrini and Peter Bosz after leaving Chelsea, his time in the game has taken in Premier League, Ligue 1, Eredivisie, Serie A and La Liga, not to mention a spell in the Chinese Super League under Owen Coyle. Kakuta has never been short on ambition.
