Chelsea keeper Cech: FA Cup triumph perfect preparation for Champions League final

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech feels their FA Cup win lifts them going into the Champions League final.

It will be Chelsea's second Champions League final after they lost on penalties by Manchester United in Moscow in 2008.

Cech said: "When you win a cup and you go to the Champions League final, it gives you a lot of confidence and the mood is obviously different when you win a cup than when you lose a cup.

"We have two weeks to prepare and we have another opportunity to have this same feeling again.

"We can concentrate on that full of confidence - it would have been completely different if we'd lost, but we didn't."
