Mason Mount could have finished in the top three of the Ballon d'Or voting, had representatives from Togo and Uzbekistan had it their way, while France Football's own chief voted for Robert Lewandowski ahead of Lionel Messi.

The Chelsea midfielder finished joined 19th in the voting for the award last week with seven votes, but Togo’s Mathias Ayena and Uzbekistan’s Grigoriy Rtveladze placed him third and second respectively. 

The 22-year-old played a pivotal role in the Blues' Champions League triumph last season, scoring nine goals and setting up another eight in 55 appearances in all competitions.

He's started the current campaign in a similarly rich vein of form, with five goals and six assists in 12 Premier League outings.

Nevertheless, his inclusion in the world's top-three players is somewhat surprising. 

According to a breakdown of the votes contained in the latest edition of France Football,  Ayena and Rtveladze were also the only two members of the jury of journalists put together by the organisers to vote for Mount. 

Each journalist has to select five players from the 30-man shortlist, and rank them in descending order of merit.
