John Obi Mikel: FA Cup always important to Chelsea

Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel says the FA Cup remains an important trophy to the club.

Chelsea meet Manchester City this weekend.

"The FA Cup is still very important," Obi Mikel told Chelsea's website. "It's always been important to Chelsea, and it doesn't matter how many times you've won it.

"I've won it four times, so there's a good tradition, and having missed out in the League Cup already, we want to get back to Wembley this year. If we can get past Manchester City we are only one game away from another semi-final.

"This is a different game from last week when we won in the Premier League. It's a different competition and we need a different mentality. I am sure Manchester City will be thinking the same."
