Mason Mount, Chelsea Midfielder’s ‘curse’ of Wembley continues to plague his career, and we’re here to explain the Chelsea midfielder’s final heartbreak.
When it comes to playing at the renowned stadium, the England international has had nothing but terrible luck.
Since graduating to Chelsea’s senior squad in 2017, Mount has established himself as one of the best young players in English football.
The midfielder had good loan spells at Vitesse and Derby County before establishing himself as a crucial player for the Blues under Frank Lampard. He is now thriving under Thomas Tuchel, but his bad record at Wembley threatens to eclipse his progress.
What is Mason Mount’s “Money Mase” Curse?
The Mason Mount’s “Money Mase” Curse refers to the Chelsea playmaker’s perceived terrible luck when playing at the legendary stadium.
Mount has lost a lot of games for his club and country, starring in the collapse of his team in a number of them, notably Chelsea’s penalty shootout loss to Liverpool in the 2022 FA Cup final.
As the shootout got to sudden death, the 23-year-old missed, giving Kostas Tsimikas the opportunity to step up and win the cup for the Reds.
How many finals has Mason Mount lost at Wembly?
Mount has lost six finals at Wembley Stadium, four of which were as a Chelsea player.
The 23-year-old also lost in the FA Cup finals of 2020 and 2021, as well as the Carabao Cup final of 2022, and he lost in the Championship play-off final of 2019 with Derby.
Mount’s most devastating setback at Wembley occurred in the Euro 2020 final, when England lost on penalties to Italy and missed out on their first major trophy since the 1966 World Cup.
Mount is still looking for his first goal in a Wembley extravaganza, having failed to score in all six of his final appearances thus far.
