Saha: Win It For Our Wounded Heroes
Frenchman issues passionate plea to reward injured Blues.
Louis Saha has delivered an FA Cup final rally cry to his Everton team-mates: Bring back the trophy for our missing heroes.
The Blues will be without Phil Jagielka, Mikel Arteta, Victor Anichebe and Yakubu for Saturday's showdown with Chelsea and Saha believes those fit owe victory to the injury-stricken quartet.
"Definitely, we do," he told evertonTV in an exclusive interview. "I feel that all the injuries we've had this season have been really, really bad injuries. Obviously, they were all the players who were really important for the team.
"It's been really unlucky for them, I am sad for them and they deserve something. Definitely, we have to win for them."
Having successfully marched through a well-publicised injury crisis he has often been part of, Saha has no reason to doubt David Moyes' men have what is required to add an FA Cup to the fifth-place league finish they secured at Fulham.
"The main strength of the team is how we work together," he said. "I do think we've got quality but we are very hard to beat thanks to our strong mentality and that's what we need to bring on the day.
"When you've got good players they can deliver that magic stuff, that quality.
"I have the confidence in my team-mates to win it on the day and that's the main thing."
