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

Welcome to the final of the Chelsea Cup.

Shaun Botterill

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.
