Cole said: "That's the sign of the times, people don't want to admit they were wrong.

"Anyone who's not having Mason Mount needs to have a look at themselves."

The Cobham Academy product has proven his worth since joining the first team but has often been defined by the few things that haven't gone his way, and then been ridiculed for them by his own supporters.

Cole was also asked how he thought the attacking midfielder would do if they had played in the same generation.

"He's more rounded. If we had a time machine and you put all of them great players and you took them out and put them back in our era, Mason would be the one that adjusts quicker."

The 23-year-old has been shining among teammates who carry a lot more experience than him, and was voted Chelsea's Player of The Season for the second consecutive campaign.
