image for Mourinho to play in FA Cup Final

Chelsea FC's Manager, Jose Mourinho, claims the club's injury problems are so bad he will consider playing as a striker for the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Mourinho could have only 10 senior players fit for the clash against Manchester United at the new Wembley Stadium, with John Obi Mikel the latest player to miss the showpiece after limping off against Everton on Sunday.

Andriy Shevchenko, Michael Ballack, Ricardo Carvalho and Arjen Robben are undergoing treatment, while Ashley Cole is facing a race against time to be fit.

Wayne Bridge , Paulo Ferrera and Khalid Boularouz have handed in sick notes from their parents while Shaun Wright Phillips is also unable to contribute on Saturday because he's lost his kit.

"If Ashley is ready we have 10 players for the final," Mourinho said. "I will have to choose between Hilarious (Chelsea FC's 3rd goalkeeper) because he is better playing forward than in goal, or else I'll play myself.

Let's face it, it wouldn't be hard to play better than Sheva!
