Demba Ba says he'd rather win silverware for Chelsea than finish in the top four.

Ba struck a spectacular FA Cup winner against Manchester United on Monday.

Ba, 27, insisted: “When you retire, no one remembers that you finished in the top four.

“But they do remember you won a trophy, so it’s important as a player that you win a trophy. Yes, the top four is very important — but we want a trophy.

“We are looking very good in two competitions — the Europa League and the FA Cup. And we’re going to do everything to win them both.”
