"We will be motivated and concentrated for the final. We will be relaxed and all the pressure will be on Chelsea. We want to frustrate the Blues."
I find it a little amusing that club that haven't lifted any silverware since 1995 will be "relaxed", simply to the fact that so many Everton players have not been it this situation before. Nonetheless, Phil Jagielka had this to say:
"I don't think anyone can compete with us in terms of a work ethic or team spirit.
"We've not been blessed with amazing players over the years but have still managed to finish fifth and sixth.
"We haven't been in this situation for a long time so we're very hungry for the win. We had a ridiculously hard run to get to the final and we don't intend to let it slip at the final hurdle."Steven Pienaar had this to say:
"We have already beaten two sides from the top four, so we can beat another this time," he said.
"It has been a long time for our fans not to have had a cup final, and we know the city will go crazy if we do win at Wembley.
"Our fans are passionate and they deserve success like this. We aim to give them their reward for all the loyalty they have shown to this club over the years.
"Chelsea are a great side, but nothing is impossible. We will give it our best shot."I am glad that Everton players stopped short from promising a win, they know that it will not be easy as surely do the Chelsea players who are still angry about Champions League Semi exit.
2 best teams are set to lock horns, I am not expecting anything less than a tight affair, a chess match if you will. Mey the best team win.
