Petr Cech declared Chelsea were in better shape to secure Champions League glory than four years ago following their FA Cup triumph.
The Blues beat Liverpool 2-1 at Wembley to set themselves up perfectly for their May 19 showdown with Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
Goalkeeper Cech, who produced one of the greatest saves in FA Cup final history to help Chelsea to victory, said: "When you win a cup and you go to the Champions League final, it gives you a lot of confidence and the mood is obviously different when you win a cup than when you lose a cup."
