Chelsea midfielder Mount on FA Cup final: I need to end this heartbreak

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is hoping it’s third time lucky ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final against Liverpool.

There will be extra motivation for the 23-year-old, given his previous FA Cup final experiences. Mount was in the Chelsea side that reached the showpiece game in 2020 but suffered defeat to Arsenal. And 12 months ago, the England international couldn’t stop Leicester City from winning the world’s oldest club competition.

“I’ve spoken a lot about how much it would mean to me to win a domestic trophy. So now is the opportunity to really achieve it and go for it,” Mount told BBC Sport. “For me to win the FA Youth Cup in the academy – two FA Youth cups actually – and then to go on and lose two finals with the first team, it’s heartbreaking. We have another opportunity. Hopefully, it’s third time lucky.”

“We have to secure top four, that’s massive for us going into next season,” Mount explained.” To win three trophies would be massive, and I think you could look at it as a successful season even though it’s been up and down and there’s so much going on. We could look back and be proud about what we achieved.”
