Chelsea are inspired next season to challenge Liverpool, Mason Mount says.
The 21-year-old told the Blues’: “This really gives you the drive next season to challenge them with a squad and be as successful as they were this season.”
The two teams are expected to compete at Anfield on Wednesday night for the fourth time during this term. And Mount said:
“This season we’ve faced them three times and we’ve certainly been competitive with them and seeing anything like the cup lift gives you some additional boost heading into next season.
“If you see things like that it offers you the additional drive to continue to compete because this is what we want to keep doing to end this season in the top four because potentially earn an award, and really concentrate on next season to just strive and move and improve.”
