Shevchenko desperate for Chelsea chance

Chelsea's fit-again striker Andriy Shevchenko is desperate to play against Tottenham in the Carling Cup final.

A source close to Sheva told the Mirror: "Andriy is ready. He has been working very hard and he is feeling good now.

"He has been very frustrated. He was in good form before he got injured, so it was unfortunate. He has been working very hard on his fitness.

"It was an awkward injury and it took longer to get right than we thought.

"Andriy wants to play. He wants to be a part of things at Wembley, though he knows he will almost certainly be starting on the bench. He is ready for that. He just wants a chance."
