Mason Mount believes that Chelsea have not been performing well enough during the last runs.

Chelsea have been able to keep the clean sheet under

Thomas Tuchel

's supervision, but Mount believes that keeping a clean sheet alone is not what the club should get after a match.

In the last match of the club against

Tottenham

,

Jorginho

managed to score one for the club in the 24th minute of the game. Chelsea had 18 shots, which was twice more than what the rivals had.

The 22-year-old had the chance to score but the opportunity was passed up.

Mount talked about the general performance of the team in his post-match speech and said:

"We had a lot of control in the first half, we had chances where we need to be more clinical, myself included.

"It is tough to come here and control throughout but we played very well.

"The manager wants us to play in that style and it is working well, it is new and different for some us including me as a false nine and we are all learning.

"It will be difficult for other teams because different formations and tactics means they won't know what we will come with.

"I told him (Thomas Tuchel) I should have scored today and did not have my scoring boots on today. Something to work on in training."

Although, Jorinho seemed more confident about the team's preparation and said:

"We knew it would be a hard game in the derby but we worked hard, created chances and deserved the win.

"We just needed to keep working hard in the second half. The results will come.

"The best thing is that we prepared, we worked and we need to think about the next game."
