MASON MOUNT scored a ‘dirty’ goal of the season candidate in Chelsea’s game against West Ham.
The midfielder followed Hakim Ziyech’s cross and volleyed past Lukasz Fabianski from close range of the Pole.
Thiago Silva gave the Blues a 1-0 lead with a header from close range before a Manuel Lanzini penalty made it 1-1.
But when there are only a few minutes left on the clock. In the first half, Mount’s effort helped the Blues regain the lead.
Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice sloppily held the ball in midfield as their London rivals regained control.
Ziyech picked up the ball towards the left goal line and touched a perfect one inch diagonal to Mount in the back post.
Hammers left-back Ben Johnson was sprinting back from an attacking position but he wasn’t quick enough as Mount headed the net for the first time with his right foot from inside the box.
It darted straight past Fabianski and into the bottom right corner to send Blues fans out in the final game.

BT Sport commentator Glenn Hoddle said Fabianski would be ‘disappointed’ if he couldn’t save it from close range.
But that was harsh for the former Arsenal man – such was the power and precision of Mount’s shot.
An entertaining first half comes after the Chelsea legend and former Hammers manager Gianfranco Zola says ‘bulls***’ streaming before the game starts.
