Arsenal goalkeeper Manuel Almunia has launched an extraordinary attack on Chelsea and their fans. England hopeful Manny told The Sun: "In the final I would want Chelsea. They are more predictable, whereas Barcelona have greater resources.
"We know what Chelsea are like. We have them measured. They wouldn't surprise us.
"They showed that all they wanted was a 0-0 result.
"Our manager Arsene Wenger doesn't know how to put a team together that isn't going for a win.
"United wanted to seal the game at home but didn't manage it and our morale is high.
"We have a great home record this season and I know we can get through to the final."
As for the Chelsea followers, Almunia added: "They say their fans are ghosts. You don't see or hear them.
