Mason Mount makes vow to Chelsea fans after disappointing them before World Cup break
Mason Mount acknowledges that Chelsea have let their supporters down in the 2022–23 campaign but has promised to make them feel “proud” again.
Potter’s tenure in west London got off to a good start, but Chelsea has lost four of their past five games overall, with their most recent defeat coming on the road against fellow top-four contenders Newcastle.
Since Jose Mourinho in October/November 2015, Potter is the first Chelsea manager to suffer three straight Premier League defeats.
With a record-breaking spending spree bringing players like Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Wesley Fofana, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Stamford Bridge over the summer, the Blues entered the season with enormous ambitions and high expectations.

A slow start led to Thomas Tuchel being replaced by Graham Potter in the dugout, but consistency has remained elusive and the World Cup break has been reached with that expensively-assembled squad sitting eighth in the Premier League table.
Mount, who will form part of England’s plans at Qatar 2022, has opened up on social media about the Blues’ struggles so far: “We haven’t played to the level we expect of ourselves as Chelsea. You all deserve more from us. When we’re back from the World Cup, we are getting straight back to it and pushing ourselves to a higher level. We have the best fans in the country and we will make you proud this season.”
