Mason Mount shares 'shush' photo on Twitter after Portsmouth-born star scores twice for Chelsea versus Southampton

MASON MOUNT could not resist a cheeky pop at Southampton as he scored twice at St Mary's.

The Chelsea star was born in Portsmouth, just half an hour down the road on the south coast from the Saints stadium.


And there has always been a bit of extra bite and motivation for boyhood Pompey fan Mount to perform against Southampton.

So when he grabbed two goals in the 6-0 thumping over Ralph Hasenhuttl's side on Saturday, Mount silenced the home fans by sticking his tongue out and then 'shushing' them with his celebration.

The Champions League winner and reported Barcelona transfer target, 23, took to Twitter to share a photo of his brilliant gesture.

He captioned the post with a simple emoji with a finger on the lips after continuing his record of scoring at St Mary's every time he has played there.

Mount said: "It was a performance that had a lot of fire in it. We needed a win. That was all that was on our mind.

"It didn’t matter who was in front of us, we were going to give it everything after two disappointing results.

"You could see in our performance there was a bit of frustration there, and a relentlessness to punish a team.

"To get the early goals helped. We kept going, got a few more, and the game was dead.

"You could see what it meant to us. It gives us confidence, especially after the last two results, confidence to get back winning and have that winning feeling.

"We need to carry this on. I feel like we are back on track and we need to keep it that way."
