Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says he dreams of securing a historic cup double with the Blues this season, starting with the FA Cup on Saturday.
The Londoners take on Liverpool at Wembley in the final this weekend before travelling to Bayern Munich in two weeks' time, where they will hope to finally lift the much-coveted UEFA Champions League trophy.
England international Lampard admits the prospect of double success is constantly on his mind.
He said: "We all have those moments when you dream about being a big part of a successful game, today or in two weeks.
"I have been fortunate enough to be part of big moments at this club, and they've been the best moments of my career. But I'd give everything to try to be part of a winning team again.
"I think about it in bed every night. I've never been more aware about what this two weeks could mean."
"The FA Cup final is a massive game against a big team, and then that Champions League final is something we've always wanted. I'm desperate to win it.
"If we can win both it will be right up there with everything else we have achieved."
Liverpool head to Wembley undefeated in four games against Chelsea, having beaten the Blues twice this season, but Lampard's team-mate John Obi Mikel hopes his side can turn that record on its head on Saturday.
"Liverpool have done well against us," he said. "They lose games, but when it comes to Chelsea they always play well.
"We are the only team in the Premier League they always like beating. I don't know why. I hope the tables will be turned."
