Mount scored the only goal in an impressive victory for Thomas Tuchel’s side at Anfield, cutting inside past Fabinho and firing a shot into the bottom corner, to lift the Blues into the top four.
The England international then replicated Dragon Ball Z in his celebration with Ben Chilwell, later tweeting: “Kamehameha”.
“Me and Chilly always sit together behind Zouma on the plane when we travel away for the Champions League and stuff,” Mount said afterwards. “He’s always watching cartoons like anime so we usually watch from behind and laugh at him.
“We said if one of us scored, we’d do it so that was the reason behind it and obviously it’s one for Kurt as well.”
“We know they have quite a high line and they like to press high, especially at home, so any time we won the ball back from turnovers or we played out from the back, we looked to go in behind them,” Mount said.
“When I got the ball, I thought I was in a bit of space and I could go at Fabinho, even though Trent [Alexander-Arnold] was maybe coming back as well.
“When I got into the box, I knew I was one-on-one so I just tried to get a yard, get it on to my right foot and then when you’re inside the box, you can open up the goal a bit. That was my idea.
“I tried to execute it and it went into the far corner. It was a massive goal for us and a massive win as well.”â
