Chelsea have made it through to their first Champions League final thanks to a 3-2 victory over Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.

Didier Drogba put the Blues ahead, but Fernando Torres equalised to force the game into extra time.

A Frank Lampard goal put Chelsea back in front before Didier Drogba found the back of the net again to seal the win.

The Blues now face Manchester United in the first ever all-English Champions League final in Moscow next month.

Chelsea fans are really excited about the win as their club have been knocked out of the competition at the semi-final stage three times in the past four years, and two of those defeats were to Liverpool!
