Chelsea's Lampard says FA Cup final will provide motivation for Champions League

Frank Lampard suggests a Chelsea victory in this weekend's FA Cup final will spur the players to produce a big performance in the upcoming Champions League decider.

The Blues meet Liverpool at Wembley tomorrow before heading to Germany to take on Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on May 19 and Lampard says a win in England's famous cup competition will provide great motivation for the next test.

"It would be a great boost," the veteran midfielder told Sky Sports. "We're in two finals now and you want to win one and take that confidence into the next one would be fantastic.

"We know that it's [the Champions League final] a very tough game in its own right out there, but we want to win it.

"We want to put everything into this game alone and all thoughts of [the] Champions League will have to be put on the back burner. Hopefully we can get the result and that will give a wave of confidence through the club."
