We all know that Mason Mount is a great footballer, but it turns out he’s actually not too shabby on the virtual pitch either.
Like so many fans, the England international likes to spend his free time playing a bit of FIFA 21 with his team-mates, and Three gave social media star Chunkz the chance to connect with Mount and sit down for a little one-on-one.
However, this wasn’t your average game. This was Forfeit FIFA. Concede a goal, do a forfeit.
The pair start off with a warm-up game to get ready for the main event, and it doesn’t go well for Mount, who finds himself 1-0 down just as team-mates Fikayo Tomori and Billy Gilmour turn up to laugh at him.
Having been left out of Thomas Tuchel’s first game in charge, Chelsea’s Mason Mount already looks to be one of the German boss’ most important players.
The PGMOL could split up referees Mike Dean & Lee Mason after the pair were involved in high-profile controversies with Tomas Soucek & Jan Bednarek.

Mount admits he’s not the best FIFA player at Chelsea, and he has to grit his teeth as he gives Tammy Abraham the praise his skills deserve.
The warm-up session comes to an end and the forfeits start to get very real. First up, Mount gets a free hit at Chunkz’s Twitter and tries to convince his following that the Soccer Aid star is actually a die-hard Chelsea fan… which doesn’t go down so well.
Fortunately for Chunkz, he soon gets revenge when he’s given the chance to send a text to anyone on Mount’s phone. He chooses to start a ‘Beard Gang’ group chat where he asks the fellow Chelsea stars for advice on facial hair, but the responses aren’t as helpful as he may have hoped.
Abraham chimes in to show off his own beard, which Tomori savagely shoots down. Maybe the striker should stick to playing FIFA instead?
That’s only half the fun. Wax strips and hot sauce soon enter the fray, and neither Mount nor Chunkz make it out of this one unscathed.
Three is set to continue giving Chelsea fans a deeper insight into life behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge, offering never-before-seen access to some of the biggest names on the team sheet.
