Michael Ballack insists Chelsea are determined to reach the last four of the Champions League to make up for the disappointment of missing out on two domestic trophies this season.

The Blues lost the Carling Cup final to Tottenham before crashing out of the FA Cup to Coca-Cola Championship side Barnsley.

"We are still in a good position in the league," said Ballack. "We had the dream of this double last season and now it is getting closer and closer."
