Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is ready to play his heart out as Chelsea play in the FA Cup final against Leicester City on Saturday.

The Blues will be playing in back to back FA Cup finals, but Chelsea were on the losing side last year.

Mason Mount doesn’t want a repeat of last year’s final defeat, and has admitted that the team has learnt and grown from past failures.

Ahead of the FA Cup final with Leicester City this weekend, Mount said: “We’ve learned a lot as a group. We’re growing, getting better and better.

“And now we’re in the final of the FA Cup and the final of the Champions League.

“We managed to get into the FA Cup final last season but fell at the final hurdle.

“We want to put that right this season and focus so much on winning things and achieving greatness, which all of us boys want to do at this great club.

“We have given ourselves a great opportunity and we are going to give it everything.”
