Ballack confident Chelsea fans are with him

Stand-in Chelsea captain Michael Ballack is convinced he's won over Blues fans.

And he is dreaming of Wembley after finally winning over Chelsea's fans.

The fit-again German star, 31, missed THREE trips to the new stadium with club and country during his eight months out with an ankle injury.

And while most of Blues' big-name players are rested for the cup holders' clash with QPR on Saturday, Ballack will be delighted to be involved.

He said: "I'm looking forward to the QPR game, the FA Cup is very important for us.

"It was a real disappointment to miss the final last season - and I was also injured when Chelsea played in the Community Shield and when Germany played England at Wembley.

"Hopefully we can reach the final again this year - and maybe this time I can play."
