Wembley FA Cup clash a "dream" for Fabregas

Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas is relishing his first trip to Wembley stadium - and he is desperate to return there later in the season and lift the FA Cup.

The Gunners midfielder comes up against Chelsea in the semi-finals of the cup competition on Saturday, with Arsene Wenger's men seeking to end their four-year trophy drought.

"I'm looking forward to it immensely," Fabregas said. "It is a great stadium from what I heard, with 90,000 fans, so it will be good to play a semi-final there.

"I dream of lifting the trophy every day, for me it is the best thing that would ever happen to me. It is a dream for me but we have to work very hard to get there."

The FA Cup does not represent Arsenal's only chance of silverware this season and the London club have a Champions League semi-final against Manchester United to look forward to on April 29.

If successful Fabregas could face his former club Barcelona in the final but the Spaniard insists he does not care who Arsenal face in Rome, as long as they get there.

"I would like to be in the final, that's all," he said.

Fabregas is feeling fresh after recovering from his serious knee injury earlier in the campaign.

"In the last six weeks I really worked hard with our physio, Tony Colbert, who was killing me," Fabregas said. "I thought he was crazy but now I know why he was doing it because I feel quite strong.

"This is just my fourth game. Still the last 10 minutes of each game I still feel a little bit but I think in the next game I will be there."
