Watch: Mason Mount sits Fernandinho on the floor with clever first touch

Mason Mount took revenge against Fernandinho in Chelsea’s FA Cup semi-final victory over Manchester City.

Fernandinho was apparently tasked with eliminating Mount’s threat and gave him brutal treatment throughout the match.

In the 17th minute, Fernandinho knocked the England international down and then tried to jump on him but his right boot seemed to catch his opponent’s attention.

The 35-year-old took on another late challenge moments later, but Mount touched the ball, leaving Fernandinho in a heap on the ground.

In the second half, Fernandinho struggled to keep up with his opponent and tried to manhandle him on the left wing.

Mount then showed brilliant strength and determination to get past Fernandinho before heading to the city goal.

Hakim Ziyech’s goal gave Chelsea a 1-0 victory and they will now face either Leicester City or Southampton in the final.
