"Mason has so many games under his belt and we have a lot of players in a similar age bracket like Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz with Callum Hudson-Odoi younger. There’s also Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner, they are all young.
"To go back to Mason, his effort, attitude and quality of play was outstanding."

"I found myself in the box which recently I haven't been doing. It is something I looked at and I managed to do that today. It fell to me and I probably should have had two,

"It has been difficult last couple of weeks, but we put pressure on ourselves to win against a good team who have been playing well."
