Football - Chelsea FA Cup Final Preview

Carlo Ancelotti has spoken to the press on Thursday ahead of the FA Cup final this coming weekend. He said:

"It may be the same line up as the last game, We only have a problem with Ivanovic, he had a problem with his knee, he trained today but I don't know if he is fit for Saturday. We might play Paulo. John Terry trained well without any problems so he is fit and ready to play on Saturday.

We have to have respect for Portsmouth because they have been relegated but they deserve to play in this Final. They played well against Tottenham in the semi-final, so we have to fight against them to win this game. Avram Grant is a very good coach, he was at Chelsea for a year, he played two finals with this club and did a very good job.

Even this year, Portsmouth had a difficult year but he worked hard to take Portsmouth to the final of the FA Cup. It gives them a good opportunity to save the season and we have to pay attention to this because we are playing against players with strong motivation.

I didn't know before this season how the FA Cup was so important for every club. It is the oldest competition in this country and I know there was a lot of surprise here when little teams played important games and won. Leeds beat United, Reading beat Liverpool, because of this we also have to pay attention for the next game.

On paper we have more quality but we have to play. If we play well we can win, if Portsmouth play better than us, then they could win. My players know very well how they have to play this game, how to prepare for this game, it is a great opportunity to win the Double, it is the first time for this club and we can do this.

It was a normal week and we are focused for the next game, everyone knows how important this competition is and I am happy because the team were playing well this week. They are focused and we want to win this cup."
