Speaking after the game, Leboeuf told ESPN, “He [Mason Mount] is absolutely fantastic [and] he’s still a young lad, we should not forget that.

“He [has played] under two different coaches, and he’s been perfect – and he’s a leader. He’s the kind of player that makes the difference.”

He added: “What he did to Fabinho, how he found the corner, how he scored the goal, shows that he’s already matured and always makes the right decision.

“Hats off, my man, carry on like that because you have a great , for sure.”
