I've had one month's holiday and I'm fresh now.
I'm having a great night. I'm very hopeful that we will win the Premiership and I hope we do well against Wigan this weekend.
Like all players, I want to be more than just my side's secret weapon. I want to show that I can make a contribution to the team over the game as a whole. That's what Im working on and I've set myself a target for breaking into the first eleven. But if I don't, it will be because the coach feels the time isn't right and I will respect his decision, as I always do.
No goals conceded is the most important thing for us. If we want to do the same thing as last year we have to do better than last year and concede fewer goals. I think we can do better than last season.
If such events should occur (again), I would no longer take the risk to come and play for the national team.
[Didier Drogba has taunted Chelsea's Premiership rivals, saying they are running scared of the West Londoners.] It must be frightening for our rivals when we are not playing well but still winning every game, ... When we play badly our rivals must think: 'What are Chelsea going to be like when they are playing well'?
We win as a team, lose as a team and celebrate as a team. It didn't matter who got him out on the pitch, we just wanted him out there.
When I scored the two goals I was very fit and now I'm coming back, so I can't promise to score two goals.
Every game is getting more difficult. Every team respects us more and defends more, looks only for the counter-attack, tries to reduce the time of the game, and fights with their strengths to make everything difficult.
No excuses. It is a difficult game, it is a derby, but we have to win because Man United is not so far behind.
He's [been] one of the best midfield players [for] 15 years. I'm very proud. I'm grateful to him.
I'm a very lucky player. In three years my life has changed. I was on the bench in the second division and step by step, year after year, I worked and I know where I want to be and I enjoy my life. I think this is the best year of my life.
My family are really enjoying living in London. My daughter and my son are speaking English very well. Better than me. They are only four and five. I like London. My first year was difficult because of the language and not being able to speak it very well. When you can speak, it is very easy to live here.
We are ready ... but I think it's 50-50. They are a good team so we'll see what happens.
Those people who are saying that are just playing mind games and trying to turn up the pressure.
Nobody likes to be substituted but solidarity with the team always comes first.
'Didier, it's done!' he shouted. That made me smile and since then Michael has seemed happy with everything like a kid. He is great to have around the place, he's thirsty for knowledge and he's a great player as well.
Maybe we spend a lot of money, but this money is not spent for nothing. We won the League and Carling Cup last season, we went to the semifinal of the Champions League and this year we are top of the League. Sometimes you have to spend money for the good reason and this is the good reason.
This is the reward of all my hard work, but also a sign of encouragement that I can still get better. I know that I am capable.
We promised you that our victory would bring back peace to our country.
Quite simply, I'd be really proud to win this Cup. A continental title means a great deal.
Sometimes I dive, sometimes I stay up.
Unfortunately in the emotion of winning the game my comments have come across partly in the wrong way. I want to make clear that I don't dive.
