Didier Drogba thinks that Chelsea will find the Champions League final tough with a number of players missing.

Didier Drogba has admitted that Chelsea are refusing to get carried with their European adventure after a number of key players were ruled out of the final.

Captain John Terry was sent off and will be suspended for the Champions League final along with Ramires, Branislav Ivanovic and Raul Meireles who all picked up their final caution.

Drogba scored the winner in the first leg whereas strikes from Ramires and Fernando Torres cancelled out Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta goals in Barcelona on Tuesday night.

However, despite being delighted to reach the final, Drogba believes that it will be tough without Chelsea's suspended players.

"We are happy that we qualified, but at the same time we keep our feet on the ground because our best players are not going to be there for the final," Drogba told Sky Sports News.

"We came here to qualify. We defended well and we tried to score with the chances we had.

"My desire is the same every year when I play the Champions League. I always want to win. I'm very happy to be in the final again. Now we have to win it."

Chelsea are also in the FA Cup final and will face Liverpool at Wembley in May.
