Mason Mount says he has a “connection” with Jack Grealish and believes they can play together in England’s midfield.
Grealish was England’s standout performer in the 3-0 win over Wales at Wembley last week, making an assist and looking the most creative player on the pitch.
But the Aston Villa midfielder was omitted from the starting line-up against Belgium on Sunday and remained an unused substitute in the 2-1 Nations League win.
Gareth Southgate opted for Mason Mount instead, with the Chelsea youngster lining up on the right-hand side of England’s attack and going on to score the winning goal.
Speaking ahead of England’s next Nations League game against Denmark on Wednesday, live on Sky Sports, Mount told Sky Sports he would like to think there could be room for both of them in the side.
“I love watching him [Grealish] play as well. He’s brilliant to be around. Obviously we all know what he can do, what a brilliant player he is,” said Mount.
“I get on very well with Jack. He’s a brilliant player and, yes, we always want to play together.
“We have such a strong group with loads of top, top players. You always want to play with the best and when you come away with England you’re doing that.
“It means so much to come away and play with the likes of Jack and the top, top players in the group.
“You’re learning all the time. Sometimes when you come away you don’t really know what kind of moves they make on the ball.
“You have to kind of learn about the players while you’re away training. You don’t get much time, but when you’re playing the games you kind of have that connection and I think me and Jack do definitely have that.
“You always want to play with the best players, win a lot of games as a group.
“We want to win things, we’re definitely on that path to keep working hard and to get better and better.”👇👇👇Follow Us On Social Media👇👇👇
