Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has already stressed the importance of their game against Tottenham on Sunday to his players, according to Mason Mount.
The Blues go into the Premier League clash following a 2-1 win over Rennes in the Champions League on Tuesday, which sealed qualification into the Round of 16.
Lampard’s side now have the chance to overtake Spurs at the top of the table with a win at Stamford Bridge.
When asked if the squad are aware of the magnitude of their game against Tottenham this weekend, Mount told Chelsea TV: “Yeah, everyone knows. The gaffer has made it very known how big of a game it is.
“All of us boys know how big of a game it is and we’re going into the game with the confidence that we want to win.
“And that’s what we’ve been doing recently and we’re not going to change.
“Obviously, we know how big of a game it is and how tough it’s going to be ‘But we’re ready, we’re confident and we’re ready to fight.”
Chelsea sit in third place, two points behind Jose Mourinho’s men.
