Chelsea fans have created a new X-rated chant directed at Manchester United midfielder Mason Mount.
Mount made a controversial £55 million transfer from Chelsea to Manchester United in July, signing a five-year contract at Old Trafford.
The 24-year-old has encountered challenges in his initial period under Erik ten Hag, contributing to the Red Devils’ worst-ever start to a Premier League season.
Despite posting an emotional farewell video to Chelsea fans prior to his move to United, some supporters have not forgiven Mount for joining their Premier League rivals. They expressed their sentiments through an X-rated chant, which was sung during Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Fulham on Monday night.

While not everyone was singing along with the chant, the lyrics go: “Who’s that t**t that comes from Portsmouth, who’s that money-grabbing wh*re, Mason Mount is his name and he hasn’t got a brain, and he won’t be winning trophies anymore!”
Mount is set for a reunion with the Chelsea supporters on December 6 when United host the Blues at Old Trafford in the Premier League.
Ten Hag’s side are currently one point above of Chelsea in the table, having suffered their worst-ever start to a Premier League season after losing four of their opening seven matches.
Moreover, the loss means United have suffered their worst-ever start to a season since 1989/90, with the club having lost four of their first seven games of the campaign.
Opening up on United’s ‘difficult start’, Mount told reporters after their defeat to Crystal Palace on the weekend (quotes via theMirror): “We want to win these games and we know we need to win these games.
“It’s been a difficult start. When you go 1-0 down, it’s always going to be hard to get back in the game. We had a few chances, but it wasn’t enough.
“We know we need to go back and look at the areas we need to improve on. We need to improve because we want to win games.
“Every competition we’re in we want to go right to the end. It’s a tough one to take. There are areas we need to look at, but it’s a frustrating one to take.”
