Watch Chelsea star Mason Mount score goal of the season contender with 'filthy' volley against West Ham

MASON MOUNT scored a 'filthy' goal of the season contender during Chelsea's game at West Ham.

The midfielder got on the end of Hakim Ziyech's cross field ball and hit a sumptuous volley beyond Lukasz Fabianski at the Pole's near post.

Thiago Silva put the Blues 1-0 up with a header before Manuel Lanzini's penalty made it 1-1.

But with mere minutes left on the clock in the first-half, Mount's effort saw the Blues regain the lead.

Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice were sloppy on the ball in midfield which saw their London rivals regain possession.

Ziyech picked up the ball towards the left touchline and pinged an inch-perfect diagonal to Mount at the back post.

Hammers left-back Ben Johnson was sprinting back from an attacking position but he wasn't quick enough as Mount hit it first time with the inside of his right foot from just inside the area.

It fizzed straight past Fabianski and into the bottom right corner to send Blues fans in the away end wild.

BT Sport commentator Ian Darke said it was a 'goal-of-the-season contender'.

And Glenn Hoddle said Fabianski would be 'disappointed' not to save it at his near post.

That was harsh on the former Arsenal man – such was the power and accuracy Mount's strike.

And fans online were more interested in praising Mount rather than criticising the Hammers – despite Soucek and Rice's sloppy play in the build up.

Hundreds of fans described it as 'filthy'.

While other chipped in with words like 'beautiful' and 'sensational'.

The teams went in 2-1 at half-time as the ref blew the whistle just minutes after the goal.

But Jarrod. Bowen pulled one back just 10 minutes after the break with a left-footed effort from the edge of the box.

The entertaining first-half came after Chelsea legend and former Hammers manager Gianfranco Zola said 'bulls***' live on air before kick-off.

And Hammers ace Manuel Lanzini also squared up to Reece James after the Argentine excellently converted his penalty after Edouard Mendy brought down Bowen.
