Chelsea boss eyes Champion League final

The changes Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo made on Tuesday night to the team that played in the FA Cup final shows how focused he is to win the Champions League against Bayern Munich on 19th May.

Matteo has been playing catch up in the Premier League and one game in thirty eight does not impact on achieving 4th position and a place at the elite table.

His best eleven have produced the results for the Blues and without key players in the final due to suspension he has cleverly took the pressure off as the Italian explains:

"I have no regrets. We've had very intense games, the last one just three days ago."

"To get yourself up every three days, it's a big demand on everyone. I thought with fresh legs and new energy we  could have had a better chance.

"We've come so far because we've used all the energy and all the players we have in the squad, that's the only way to be in the race for fourth until now and qualify for those two finals.

"Liverpool is a difficult place to play and we found a very inspired Liverpool side."

The Chelsea temporary boss will still be as laid back for his second final and the financial rewards of picking up the Trophy may still not satisfy the club's owner Roman Abramovich.
