Saha preparing for FA Cup final

Everton striker Louis Saha says he is ready to be called upon when the Blues face Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley on 30 May.

The injury-prone Frenchman started and scored twice in the 3-1 victory over West Ham on Saturday at Goodison Park.

"I just want to concentrate and make sure I'm on top form for that game," Saha told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"I don't want to be starting the game if I'm not ready. That doesn't help the team win the cup."

The 30-year-old was grateful for the contribution from midfielder Steven Pienaar during the victory over West Ham, as the South African made a goal from nothing to give Saha his second of the match.

"It was an amazing move from Steven down the left side," Saha continued. "He just turned and gave me a tap-in to score.

"It's really easy when you can finish like this."
