Andrie Shevchenko final verifies himself worth few of those Pounds that the Premiership champions have invested upon the Ukrainian – The striker had been struggling to make the lineup post recovering from injury but finding the net twice leading the Blues to the Carling Cup final, he may have averted the Bench fall as early as this. The Ukraine international had gone without a goal in his last 10 appearances for Chelsea – The ₤ 30 million wonder scored twice against Wycombe while Lampard scored the other two, in the sides 4-0 victory in the semifinals of the oldest cup in England. Shevchenko of late had been in cold terms with boss Mourinho partly for his performance and partly his friendship with club owner Abramovich – but late in the game when he was substituted, he was seen greeting the coach who seemed impressed by the striker’s performance. Chelsea’s defeat to Liverpool at the weekend had put the side down though this win will heal the bruised confidence and lift them for the future encounters – The clubs defense in the absence of the skipper Terry has looked pretty fragile, though another booster for the squad is the return of the central defender for full training from the leg injury. This positive outing would have come as a much-needed respite for Mourinho on both grounds the return of Sheva to form and the team reaching the finals of the English League Cup. Chelsea will now face the winners of the other semifinal between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs on 25th Feb. at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
