John Terry believes that Didier Drogba is capable of providing another final winner when Chelsea take on Tottenham in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley on Sunday.

The Ivorian striker has scored in nine finals throughout his career for Chelsea, and Terry believes he's the man to do the job once more.

Final dreams

He told the Daily Mail: "The main one that sticks out is the Champions League, you look at the FA Cup against Manchester United too. In these big games you look for your big players, when things are tight you look for one of the them to do something special.

"He’s always been the one to step up and produce the goods. Whether he starts or comes on he’s got a big part to play in this game."

Drogba is in is second spell at Stamford Bridge and has only managed three Premier League goals this term. He's likely to start Sunday's game on the bench.

Costa concerned ahead of cup final

Chelsea striker Diego Costa is concerned with finding peak physical form in time for Sunday's Capital One Cup final against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Brazilian only recently returned from a three-game suspension for stamping on Liverpool's Emre Can, and looked out of sorts in Chelsea's 1-1 draw against Burnley over the weekend.

Costa will lead the line against Spurs, but he concedes that he's worried about his form and fitness. "The suspension has gone," he told the Guardian. "It’s one thing that happened, and now I’m just trying to get back to my best physical form. You have just to forget about it.

"I joined a club like Chelsea to win titles. As we say, finals are not there to be played. They are there to be won. I will go into the game with the mentality and have the motivation to come away with the title."

Chelsea boost in Pogba race

Chelsea have received a major boost in the race to sign Paul Pogba after the midfielder apparently revealed that he has no interest in returning to Manchester United.

The French international is in serious demand and could leave Juventus in the summer. According to the Daily Star. They quote a source as saying: "He's aware of United's interest in him but he has no desire to go back there.

"He is happy at Juventus, but if he does decide to leave them he has bigger and better options than United. He won't be playing for them again."
