Asmir Begovic was in goal for Chelsea, as the Blues defeated Wolves 2-0 in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The Bosnian was happy with the team’s performance and revealed that they want to win the FA Cup – a competition he called the best cup competition in the world.

“It’s important that when you’re called upon, and you haven’t been playing regularly, you’re able to back up your quality and show what you can bring to the team,” said Begovic. “We try to do that, as a team we’ve been doing well so it’s really difficult to change the side on a weekly basis, but when you’re given a chance it’s nice to be able to show what you can do.

“We take this competition very seriously, we’re in it to win it. Wolves are a good side so it was important for us to play a strong team and put in a good performance.

“The competition is getting tougher every year. All of the teams are improving and all of the divisions are getting stronger so it’s difficult to not take it seriously. In the time I’ve been here we’ve always taken the cup competitions seriously, it’s instilled within the club.

“We have a very good squad so whenever changes are made, for whatever reasons, we have ready-made players. It’s important to give the FA Cup the respect it deserves, it’s the best cup competition in the world.”
