Chelsea midfielder Obi Mikel wants more FA Cup glory

John Obi Mikel says winning the FA Cup remains a priority of Chelsea.

Chelsea face the winners of the replay between Manchester City and Stoke in the last eight.

Mikel has won the trophy in two of his three full seasons at Stamford Bridge - being singled out for impressive performances in both the 2007 and 2009 finals.

"I want to do well because I always want to win," said Mikel. "But maybe the final feels a bit more special and a good performance there shows people how much you want to win the trophy.

"The game is the really special part of the day if you get to the FA Cup final.

"That's what leads you to winning the trophy and everything else comes from that - the build-up and the celebrations just make it more special. I think playing the FA Cup, whatever round you are in, always feels very special."
