Mason Mount continued to press his claim for a starting role for Chelsea this season as he scored twice in a 4-3 friendly win at Reading.
The Blues trailed early on to Josh Barrett’s delicious lob.
Ross Barkley equalised with a 20-yard free-kick before Kenedy put Chelsea in front with a long-range strike.
Mount’s two goals in three minutes – in between Michael Morrison’s equaliser and a Sam Baldock consolation – made sure of the win.
It was the latest impressive display by Mount, who did not look out of place during a 2-1 victory over Barcelona on Tuesday.
With Chelsea restricted by a transfer embargo this season, the 20-year-old looks set to continue the influential role he enjoyed under manager Frank Lampard when the pair were together at Derby last season.
