Chelsea host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge tonight in the FA Cup quarterfinal, and Blues second choice goalkeeper Asmir Begovic believes playing in front of the fans is an added advantage.
“We’ve felt really comfortable at home, and that’s due to the atmosphere,” Begovic told Chelsea’s official website.
“It’s been a collective effort.
“We want to finish the season strong and our home form will be key to that.
“It’s important we keep performing the way we are at Stamford Bridge. The fans have been great and if they keep up their support it’ll help us a lot.
“Us players will try to keep things going the right way.
“Everyone has bought in to what we are trying to do and achieve, and we know that ultimately if we stick together we can achieve great things.”
Begovic who has played in all the FA Cup games for Chelsea this season will hope to start ahead of number one goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois against United.
