(Opinion) Why Mason Mount Is A Similar Type Of Player To Kelvin De Bruyne

This might be an unpopular opinion. However, after witnessing Mason Mount's performance against Fulham, characterized by his magnificent touch and assist, this comparison only got stronger in my head.

First Mount and De Bruyne seem to have similar down to earth personalities. Both players are significantly shy and down to earth on the pitch and in real life. Both players like to make their football do the talking for them.

Mount and De Bruyne, might not have the same impact in terms of output, with De Bruyne providing a much higher number of goals and assists per season.

However, considering Mount's age, that is no surprise. However, their ability to slot in comfortably both in central midfield and in the number 10 positions make them quite similar.

Not only are they able to dictate play in midfield, both can also perform their defensive duties as expected.

In deed, one of the key reasons why Mount was an ever present player in Lampard's team was his incredible defensive work rate. Finally, both players are able set piece takers.

Mount and De Bruyne are the number one set piece takers in their respective teams. Both are also quite adept at deciding games on their own as well as shooting from distance.
