Chelsea vs. Manchester City, FA Cup: Lineups & Game Thread

Shaun Botterill

Welcome to the final of the Chelsea Cup.

Chelsea go into every game wanting to win. This club is not used to losing, we play every game like it's a cup final and I think today will be the same.

We've always welcomed the games, it's a great team and footballers like to play. Today is the big one and we need to focus on that.
