Chelsea are going through a dark period. Their operations are limited, the owner is sanctioned and the club is up for sale.
Yet this uncertainty does not translate to poor form on the pitch. Quite the other way around, as the Blues are on a six-game game winning streak.
“We have that winning mentality in the group,” Mason Mount said after the Boro win.
“Any game, any competition, we want to win. Cup or league, we give it everything.
“It’s been a tough couple of weeks, but we are focused and ready to play.
“It shows our mentality. There is a lot going on around us. But within the group, we have so much focus, try to block out what’s going on around us.”
