 I was very frustrated and angry after last year's semi-final loss to United. I was so sad we couldn't make the final after coming so close. But the way we've turned things around this season gives us more desire and hunger to beat them this time. I'm very confident we'll win.

 I hope that both can be in the final, they are very important and deserve to play in a game like this ... It would be very good. Iniesta has had a spectacular season and it's the same with Henry, who has scored a lot of goals. It will be a lot easier if they are there.
