Frank Lampard is a serial FA Cup winner so does not need a good luck message from Roman Abramovich.
Lampard won the trophy four times as a player, scored the winner in the 2009 final and believes the cup still carries its old magic from when he grew up watching the Wembley showpiece.
Chelsea ’s Russian billionaire owner Abramovich missed the club’s last FA Cup final as he was having visa problems two years ago.
And Lampard says he is not expecting a pat on the back from his boss before the game.
Blues boss Lampard said: “I don’t need a phone call, or a message, or recognition like that because I feel the support from the owner.
“I have felt it from him from the moment I took the job.
“I felt it for many years as a player. I am happy if I can make him happy.
“Last Sunday was a step forward in where we are right now (by finishing in the top four) and I want to continue making those steps.
“I grew up watching FA Cup finals and winning goals and I remember them all very well.
“I can’t recount them all now, but if you gave me five minutes I could sit down and pretty much list them all through the 90s.
“I enjoyed the final against Everton, to score the winning goal is a small individual moment that stays with you.
“So to score individually was great, but that individual moment can’t override every collective win.
“I think the magic is in how you feel and how you approach it, how you want it to be. It’s definitely still there for myself.
“I still have those feelings within me, so my job as manager of Chelsea is to try and ignite the players to feel like that, because I know the fans do, particularly now it’s a London derby.
“The players have to fee a little bit of what the fans feel.
“They’re not there, but will be sitting on the sofas supporting their team, so the magic it creates is still strong as far as i’m concerned.”
