Revealed: Chelsea player salaries and how much all the new signings take home each week - in pictures

The new list has been published ahead of the Blues trip to Newcastle

Frank Lampard hopes Mason Mount will bring his sparkling international form back to Chelsea.

Midfielder Mount started all three of England's matches during the two-week break and scored his third Three Lions goal against Iceland.

Like all Chelsea's internationals, Mount faces a quick turnaround with a trip to Newcastle for Saturday's lunchtime kick-off.

But, despite the extra workload placed on the 21-year-old, Blues boss Lampard said: "I think it shows how much Gareth Southgate sees in him and relies on him and trusts in him. It's nice to see a lot of positivity around Mason. It is well deserved.

"Maybe he's a player who has more quality passes in pressing moments in a game than a show-reel of stepovers and flicks. Maybe that's not as exciting to the modern fan, but, for us managers, I think you can see how much we rely on him.

"I get Gareth's position in playing him. He played three games. He was the only player in the England squad, of all the European-playing players at club level, to play all three games.

"I know it adds to his games, but I understand Gareth's position and I understand where he will be with that.

"The thing about Mason is that he has a great attitude, he's a fit young man and will have a lot of games coming up that I will need him to be fit for.

"With Mason I hope that he comes through fresh because at the minute he's in great form."

Christian Pulisic will miss out at St James' Park with a hamstring injury, while Thiago Silva will be rested.

Meanwhile, online sports team and player contract website spotrac have updated their compilation of Chelsea salaries following the transfer window.

Ben Chilwell remains the top earner at Stamford Bridge, with a deal worth a tidy £9,880,000 a year, or £190,000 a week ($252,000).
