Mason Mount still believes that Chelsea can win the Premier League title

Mason Mount still believes that Chelsea can win the Premier League title.

The 21-year-old footballer has said that his team still have the "confidence" to triumph in the title race despite losing ground after indifferent results in recent matches.

He said: "When you are putting that pressure on yourself to win the Premier League, every game brings pressure, every point counts. We were top for a bit, we draw some games and we drop down to third. That shows that if you drop points, the race can be over very quickly."

Mount believes that winning the club's first Premier League title for five years is the "goal" for the Chelsea team this term.

He told Sky Sports: "The title has always been our goal. We want to be up there. More than ever this season, we feel like we have a big chance. We can definitely do it. We have the confidence. But we need to be humble and focused too. We need to keep doing the basics well."

Mount got a dragon tattoo inked onto his abdomen to celebrate his team's Champions League victory against Manchester City at the Estadio do Dragao stadium in Portugal last season, but is unlikely to keep up the body art tradition if he wins more trophies.

He said: " I don't think I can do it for every trophy or I would be covered by the end of my career, hopefully. But we will see. That is the goal. That is the dream."
