Were Chelsea unlucky to lose the FA Cup final to Liverpool? Have your say in the comments below.
The midfielder was of course part of the Three Lions’ side that reached the delayed Euro 2020 final against Italy. It was not meant to be for Mount once again as penalties proved to be his nemesis.
With the latest defeat, the emotions appeared to get the better of the 23-year-old. He was pictured after the final whistle on his haunches and choked up, whilst being comforted by fellow midfielder Jorginho.
Despite his horrendous run in finals, Mount has once again established himself within the Chelsea side this season with an extremely impressive campaign. The midfielder has 13 goals and 16 assists to his name in all competitions so far this season and will look to be adding to those numbers over the final week of the season.
Chelsea at first take on Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Thursday before rounding off their season against already-relegated Watford. Thomas Tuchel will be aiming to seal third place and with it a place in next season’s Champions League.
They currently sit four points clear of nearest challengers Arsenal, with victory against Leicester in mid-week enough to see them seal a place back at Europe’s top table.
