Unsuspecting Chelsea midfielders Mason Mount and Erin Cuthbert were pranked by their team-mates earlier this year after going undercover in a car dealership, having worn facial prosthetics to conceal their identities

Chelsea stars Mason Mount and Erin Cuthbert pranked who they thought were unsuspecting members of the public in a car dealership back in February, but all was not as it seemed.

Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma, Millie Bright and Ji So-Yun helped organise from behind the scenes, and all the alleged customers were actors that had been hired to trick both Mount and Cuthbert.

To the delight of their colleagues, the actors asked a series of technical questions about cars that left the undercover ‘Nick and Sheila’ on the back foot.

The video, that was filmed in February, saw Blues youngster Mount put on a wig and fake beard to conceal his identity, but he almost failed to stay in character when one fan said he was a Chelsea supporter.

Mount broke into Chelsea’s first-team this season after impressing for Derby in the Championship last time out, and has since forced his way into Gareth Southgate’s England plans.

Frank Lampard has stuck by the midfielder during an indifferent period of form earlier in the campaign, and he is likely to play a key role in their pursuit to secure Champions League football for next season when football resumes.

Mount’s team mate at both club and international level, Tammy Abraham, has offered his thoughts over his talent earlier this month - pointing out similarities to their manager.

"When we were growing up, him and John Terry were massive for us over in the academy," Abraham told Chelsea's 5th stand app of Lampard.

"Lampard was always a leader, he always wanted to train the best, be the best. You could see that in his character.

"I see similarities in Mason Mount, you know.

"You can see that he has obviously studied the way the gaffer played and that’s huge; because he knows about scoring, he knows about defending, he knows about passing.

"He knows about everything, so it’s nice to have a manager with that experience.”

Mount said of he progress back in March: "You listen to every bit of advice coming your way and learn from it.

"It's good to have my dad there focused on me, watching what I need to do better.

"It helps me so much coming off the pitch speaking to him in the car.

"We have done that since I was a little kid and some things never change."
