Ikeme Brace Up For Diego Costa Challenge When Wolves Take On Chelsea In Emirate FA Cup


Super Eagles and Wolverhampton Wanderers shot stopper Carl Ikeme has expressed his happiness at reaching 200 senior appearances for Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday evening in their game against Wigan Athletic.

Ikeme is once again expected to be behind the sticks for Wolves when they face Premier League leaders Chelsea this weekend in the FA Cup, and he believes it will be a tougher tie than their last game, where they sent Liverpool out of the tournament.

“Saturday’s going to be even tougher as they’re flying at the moment,” he said.

“It’s something that we can enjoy. I think it’s a game we can give back to the fans.

“We haven’t been in the Premier League for a number of years and we’ve had a couple of low points during that time as well.

“As players, as staff and as supporters I think it’s game that everyone can just go and enjoy.

“I’m looking forward to seeing Molineux packed. It’s going to be a great atmosphere and a great occasion.

“The bigger the occasion is, the better we seem to play.

“It’s going to be something that everyone’s going to revel in. Nobody’s going to have any fear.

“You’re playing against the best players in the world so it’s going to be something that we’re all going to enjoy and we’re all going to do our best.”
