Joe Cole knows a thing or two about winning the FA Cup. The former West Ham, Chelsea, Liverpool and Lille creator collected two winners medals during his days as a player, both during his five year spell with the Blues. 

Cole started the 2007 FA Cup Final, which Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea won 1-0 against Manchester United. He then came off the bench to help secure a 1-0 over Portsmouth under Carlo Ancelotti in 2010. Speaking to FourFourTwo on behalf of Budweiser ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Leicester, Cole revealed which of the current crop of Chelsea stars would have fit in with those cup-winning Chelsea sides of old.
