The England international grabbed the match-winner at Anfield, with the Blues’ game plan playing out to perfection against the Reds

Mason Mount has revealed his goal celebration after netting Chelsea’s match-winner against Liverpool was inspired by the “anime cartoons” that Kurt Zouma watches on Champions League away trips.

The England international grabbed a priceless effort at Anfield on Thursday, with a well-earned victory over the defending Premier League champions lifting Thomas Tuchel’s side into the top four.

Mount’s moment of magic saw him produce a composed finish after cutting inside Fabinho, lashing into the bottom corner, with Ben Chilwell joining him to acknowledge that strike as Chelsea revelled in a Merseyside masterclass.

What has been said?

Talking the Blues’ official website through a choreographed celebration, Mount said: “Me and Chilly always sit together behind Zouma on the plane when we travel away for the Champions League and stuff.

“He’s always watching cartoons like anime so we usually watch from behind and laugh at him.

“We said if one of us scored, we’d do it so that was the reason behind it and obviously it’s one for Kurt as well.”
