    Mount, who broke through into the Chelsea first team under Frank Lampard last season, has shed light on the quality of Bayern and Thiago. 

    ‘Bayern have some unbelievable world-class players… [Robert] Lewandowski, [Joshua] Kimmich and Thiago in midfield, I just couldn’t get near him,’ he told Sport Bible.

    ‘It was a big moment, it opened my eyes. It made me realise, “This is the next level, this where you need to be”. And I am determined to work hard and reach that level.

    ‘It was a tough lesson, but we’ve taken so much from that experience and we’ll come back stronger.’ 

    After comfortably beating Chelsea Bayern went on to humiliate Barcelona 8-2 and then saw off Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain to win the Treble last campaign.
