As Frank Lampard sat down next to Carlo Ancelotti last night to take part in the press conference ahead of tonight's game, it was evident that the focus of the build up to the game is about Moscow and Chelsea's determination to win this trophy after having come so close.

Frank Lampard was quick to respond. He said:
We've been so close and every year people talk about it even more – about the burden, the sense of fate and destiny. We try not to think about that because it can weigh you down, and every year it gets tougher. But we've got belief in the squad here. Winning the Champions League can be about playing the big games at the right time, when your squad's playing well and are fit, and we're in that position now.

The disappointments spur you on. There's nothing worse than the feeling of losing a Champions League final, or a semi-final in different circumstances. Losing the 2008 final on penalties was a huge disappointment, and it would be lovely to put that right. Considering what we've done domestically – we've won everything – this is the one that stands out.

But there's no point being negative and crying about the near-misses. We hope one day we'll have one huge positive experience in this competition that will allow us to forget all the other ones."
(Souce: Guardian)

Frank Lampard is spot on. We have the squad to do it and the key players to do it. We just need to make sure that our big name players deliver and step up to the challenge.
