Mason Mount called Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle United “ massive’ ‘as the Blues extended their unbeaten run

Chelsea are now unbeaten in nine games in all competitions after winning their second in their last eight at St James’ Park against the Magpies

Frank Lampard’s side have lost just one league game this season, in September against Liverpool, when they were down to 10 men

They are now in a rich vein of form and gaining momentum ahead of the busy Christmas season, as if the calendar weren’t already full

“It was a massive win,” said Mount “We know from last season how hard it is to come here and get a result I know without the fans it can be a bit more easy to come to places like this especially this season to get results because the fans here obviously had a big impact on them last season it was a close game

“I think the way we’re playing right now we’re confident that we can come to these places and be confident to get a result, which maybe last season we didn’t have that confidence

“But we are building momentum, we can’t let go, we just have to keep focusing on winning games, scoring goals and trying to keep as much clean sheet as possible

“You look back at some of the results, at home too, that we are losing points, we have conceded easy goals and I feel like this season there is a bit of a change in that genre mentality, being ruthless in front of goal I mean I could have had one today, Timo could have had two We create chances and look solid at the back so I think that’s the thing more important and the goals will come “
