Lampard: Chelsea always were going to win FA Cup

Frank Lampard insists Chelsea were always going to win the FA Cup.

He told chelseafc.com: "Personally it is great to score the winning goal, but as a group and a team and the club itself, we deserved this.

"I take nothing away from Everton, they played very well, but with the team that we have had, the hard work we have put in and how close we got to the Champions League Final, we had to win the FA Cup."

So that's another FA Cup in Chelsea's history, making it five altogether, and Lampard's now ready to build on this year's campaign.

"In the league it is a shame we didn't start showing our quality earlier this season and it is a shame with the circumstances of the semi-final in the Champions League, but to win the FA Cup is always a great achievement and now we look forward to next year."
