Louis Saha
Saha has scored seven goals since his move from Manchester United

Everton striker Louis Saha says it is unthinkable for his team not to lift the FA Cup on Saturday when they face Chelsea in the final at Wembley.

"Right now it's impossible to think about not winning it," the France man told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"When you're a player you want to win trophies. When you walk onto the pitch and you see the cup you want to grab it and I do believe it's possible."

"We've done so much [to get to the final] and we've worked so hard."

The 30-year-old has played his part in getting the Blues to the final having scored in the 2-1 victory over Middlesbrough in the quarter-finals at Goodison Park in March.

But Saha, who is likely to start for Everton up front in the game, admits his confidence is often dictated by his fitness and now he is free from injury he is confident he can score goals and maybe one on the biggest stage of all.

"It's really important for me to be fit," continued Saha. "I do think my confidence has always come with my fitness.

"So I feel really good right now and the goals are coming - and hopefully on the day of the final as well.

"That would be the best feeling. I do think scoring on the day would be really great."
