For Chelsea it's a chance to make club history and secure the league and cup double for the first time, they can be more prepared to make history.

Salomon Kalou missed an easy chance in the first half, hitting the ball against the crossbar six yards in front of an open goal.

Within minutes in second half, Drogba struck the post with a curling free kick that this time went into the net beyond the outstretched James.
