Didier Drogba was Chelsea's goal hero again at Wembley as Carlo Ancelotti's side became only the seventh club in history to achieve the League and FA Cup Double after a 1-0 win over Portsmouth.

Drogba's 58th minute free-kick matchwinner earned the Blues their first-ever Double in Ancelotti's debut season in England.

But Chelsea had to thank goalkeeper Petr Cech who saved Kevin-Prince Boateng's penalty in the 55th minute after Juliano Belletti had brought him down. Frank Lampard also missed an 87th penalty for Chelsea but it was too late for Portsmouth and the Blues hung on to clinch the Double.
