@DanielRegha was livid:

"Mount's outfit looks ridiculous, lovely color & dope shoes but the oversize is not drip; Celebs be wearing awful outfits in an attempt to look stylish or start a trend. Only a few players like Memphis, Yedlin & Pogba, just to name a few, are impressing me with their fashion game."

@Matosevic_JR tweeted:

"Looks like his mum bought it for him and said you’ll grow into it."

"When you borrow your uncles pants"

The midfielder started the season poorly but has since picked up the pace under new manager Graham Potter.

He is expected to be a part of Gareth Southgate's squad for the World Cup, where the Three Lions will be looking to better the 2018 semi-final finish.

Mason Mount on Potter's impact

Sports Brief has reported that Chelsea forward Mason Mount has revealed how Graham Potter has impacted his game, allowing him to score more goals and contribute to the team's performance.

The 23-year-old was underwhelming at the start of the season under Thomas Tuchel, failing to register a goal or an assist in seven matches under the German.

Since Potter was appointed however, Mount has improved significantly, getting seven goal contributions in ten matches under the Englishman.
