Injuries concern Drogba

18 May 2007 - 11:38:51

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba thinks Manchester United are slight favourites to win Saturday's FA Cup Final because of the Blues' horrendous injury list.

Jose Mourinho said earlier in the week that he was considering using goalkeeper Henrique Hilario as a substitute striker as he will be without Michael Ballack, Andriy Shevchenko, Ricardo Carvalho, Arjen Robben and John Obi Mikel for the Wembley showpiece.

Drogba told Sky Sports News: "I think the two teams are equal.

"They went to the semi-finals of the Champions League and so did we as well, but they controlled the league so maybe you can say they are the favourites.

"When you have so many injuries you have to find another way to win. You need commitment and you need to be more than 100 per cent.

"I think we are going to go there on Saturday like that and it is going to be a very good Final.

"It is going to be a big moment for me because the last game I remember (at Wembley) was Manchester United in the FA Cup (against Liverpool) with Eric Cantona scoring a fantastic goal and also France beating England with Nicolas Anelka scoring two goals."
