Roberto Di Matteo is confident his squad will not hold back in Wednesday night's crucial Barclays Premier League game against Newcastle, regardless of the match taking place less than three days before their FA Cup final showdown with Liverpool.

The Stamford Bridge clash against the Magpies is arguably more important than Saturday's showpiece, with Di Matteo's number one priority ensuring Chelsea qualify for next season's Champions League.

"We've not talked about it at all," Di Mattteo said of the Liverpool game, insisting he had yet to pick his team for Wembley. "I'm deciding for the game tomorrow. We'll see how the game goes tomorrow and then I'll be thinking about Saturday."
