Mason Mount is pushing to take Ross Barkley’s England place, having already jumped ahead of the midfielder in the Chelsea pecking order.

Mount has impressed England coaches in training ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria.

Barkley, who also faces pressure from Leicester City’s James Maddison, started ahead of Mount for the last two victories over Bulgaria and Kosovo, but has since lost his place to the 20 year-old at Chelsea.

Mount has started six of Chelsea’s games since the last international break, with Barkley only starting twice - against Grimsby Town in the Carabao Cup and Brighton.

England manager Gareth Southgate’s assistant Steve Holland was at Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday to watch Mount score his fourth goal of the season.

Barkley was an unused substitute.

Barkley has impressed Southgate over recent months for England, but the former Everton star will be well aware that slipping down the Chelsea pecking order has left his international place vulnerable.
