It means the England and Chelsea ace has now lost SIX consecutive finals at Wembley in his professional career.

Mount‘s bad luck at the national team’s stadium started back in 2019 during his loan spell at Derby.

The 23-year-old was playing under Frank Lampard at the time but lost to Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final.

He then followed it up with back-to-back FA Cup defeats in 2020 and 2021.

Mount then suffered heartbreak with England, who were penalties away from their first major trophy since 1966, but they were toppled by Italy.

And this season, back-to-back losses to Liverpool on penalties in both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup added more insult to injury for the Chelsea fan.

Mount’s bad luck is leading to some fans believing the midfielder is “cursed”.

One fan said on Twitter: “Mason Mount is really cursed at Wembley.”
