Blues skipper has double vision

Chelsea reached their third FA Cup final in four years with a 3-0

semi-final victory over Aston Villa at Wembley yesterday but the

focus has already switched to their home game with Wanderers and

their double bid. Bolton have gained something of a reputation for

spoiling the party at Stamford Bridge in recent seasons but Chelsea

are determined to keep up the pressure on their rivals at the top

of the table. Goals from Didier Drogba, his 32nd of the season,

Florent Malouda and Frank Lampard helped the FA Cup holders to set

up a final against Portsmouth or Tottenham in May. It also keeps

them on course to become only the seventh club in history to win

both competitions in the same season. “We’ve got our eyes on the

double now,” declared Terry. “We are back at the top of the Premier

League with five games to go and we are in the FA Cup final now so

that’s what our sights are on. “We know we’ve got some tough games

coming up but as long as we keep winning and working hard for each

other it is possible. “We’ve got some tough games coming up in the

league. We’ve got Bolton in the week, which will be tough. “Looking

at the fixtures, they all seem really difficult, but as long as we

keep winning and working hard for each other, then the double is

possible.” Terry came under fire from Villa boss Martin O’Neill for

a second-half challenge on James Milner that led to a yellow card

for the Chelsea defender. An incensed O’Neill claimed: “It was an

horrendous challenge on an England team-mate. James Milner is

exceptionally lucky his career is intact. It should have been a

straight red card. “It could have been very serious. James is lucky

to have got away with it. The fact his leg was in the air helped. I

have spoken to the doctor who says he’s a very lucky boy.” Terry is

understood to have spoken to Milner after the game and Chelsea

insist they have no plans to respond to O’Neill’s remarks at the

present time. But Terry did have some sympathy with Villa over a

first-half penalty appeal that was flatly rejected by referee

Howard Webb. Gabriel Agbonlahor appeared to be wrestled to the

ground by Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi but Webb decreed

otherwise. However, Terry was convinced that Villa should have been

given a spot-kick. “I think it was a penalty for Villa,” he

admitted. “I was right there. I would say so. But the game is over.

We should have had some penalties earlier in the season and we move

on.” Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou revealed how a half-time blast

from angry coach Carlo Ancelotti helped give the Blues the boost

they needed to go on and win the game. Chelsea had been lethargic

and off the pace in the opening half as Villa dominated the game

but Ancelotti let rip during the interval. “He was saying that we

were playing too static and there was not a lot of movement in the

front,” said Kalou. “Of course Carlo was angry because that was not

the Chelsea that people want to see or the Chelsea we want to be.

“He was angry because of that and every player understood that we

had to do better if we wanted to win the game.” Kalou also insists

Drogba’s opening goal in the 67th minute paved the way for their

victory over a side they hammered 7-1 in the league just a

fortnight ago. Kalou came off the bench to help open the game up

and the Ivorian believes they will need more impact players if they

are to land the coveted double. “Once we scored the first goal, we

had more space to play and more chances to create goals,” said

Kalou. “It is important if we want to win the double, that we have

people who come off the bench and change games. “We have never done

the double before and it would be good history for the club and the

manager. To have the opportunity to do the double as a player is

amazing.”
