Mason Mount Has Lost Six Finals At Wembley Since 2019, The 'Money Mase' Curse Is Real
| Last updated
Chelsea's defeat to Liverpool in the FA Cup final means Mason Mount has now lost his six last finals at Wembley.
The Reds claimed their second trophy of the season after a 6-5 penalty shootout victory.
Kostas Tsimikas stepped up to send Edouard Mendy the wrong way and condemn Thomas Tuchel's side to a third FA Cup final loss on the bounce.
Mount featured in all three of those defeats which include 2020 to Arsenal, 2021 to Leicester City and Saturday's game. He also had his penultimate spot kick saved by Alisson to really rub it in.

Chelsea were favourites in 2020 and 2021, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's brace downed them inside an empty Wembley two years ago after Mateo Kovacic's red card. Youri Tielemans' thunderbolt gave Leicester their first ever FA Cup last year.
Liverpool won the Carabao Cup back in February and it was Chelsea again who they edged in a penalty shootout.
Mount didn't take part in that penalty shootout and was replaced in the 74th minute of normal time by Romelu Lukaku.
If you think the 23-year-old's luck gets better on international duty, think again.
He suffered penalty heartbreak with England at Euro 2020 when Italy shocked an entire nation with their 3-2 penalty triumph.
Going back even further, the midfielder was part of the Derby County side that were beaten by Aston Villa in the 2019 play-off final.
Anwar El Ghazi and John McGinn scored early in the second half and Jack Marriott's goal nine minutes from time wasn't enough to stop Frank Lampard's side from slumping to a 2-1 loss.
Mount's only final win came in the Champions League, when Kai Havertz scored the only goal of the game as the Blues emerged 1-0 victors over Manchester City.
It's not a bad one to win at least.
Chelsea will now turn their attention to sealing Champions League qualification for next season with two games to go.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are three points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City and will face Real Madrid in the Champions League in two weeks time.
The quadruple is still on for now, but Jurgen Klopp's men may have to do it without Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk.
Salah was forced off in the first half, while van Dijk couldn't continue after normal time.
