Mount has rated his season a 7/10 but he has a chance to push it up to an eight with victory - and a goal - against Arsenal in FA Cup final
“It’s difficult,” said Mount. “But because I have got seven goals I will give myself seven out of 10. I’m a big self-critic and I know there is much room for improvement. I’ll keep getting better and better.”
“I always speak to my dad before a season starts and we set goals and one of those was 10 goals, so we haven’t reached that. It is what it is. Seven goals (in the Premier League) and five assists, so 10 goals and assists but the focus was on goals.
“Dad’s very hard on me and is my biggest critic, so 10 is always going to be the target. He has said that my whole life. If you are averaging 10 goals as a midfielder, you are having a good season. I fell a bit short, but that will be my goal next season. I will keep setting it until I achieve it and, hopefully, keep getting better and better at it.”
