Chelsea midfielder Florent Malouda believes the club can finally lift the UEFA Champions League trophy this season.
The Blues' unbeaten start to the league season came to an end on Saturday after they were humbled 1-0 at Manchester City.
However, the France international insists Carlo Ancelotti's side have the firepower to claim the ultimate prize at Wembley stadium in May.
The 30-year-old told the Daily Star Sunday: "It's a big target for this club to win the European cup.
"Coming so close has been frustrating and we really do feel this is the year we can win it.
"Any talk of us putting more importance on the Champions League than the Premier League is wrong - we know how important both are to the club and the fans.
"We want them both. We know how hard that will be but we have a fantastic squad.
"The manager can put one team out on a Saturday and another out in the week. They would both be world class."
The midfielder, who has already netted six goals for the club this season, has praised Ancelotti.
"I think our manager is one of the most proven managers there is," he added.
"Every single player at the club is having a lot of fun playing under him and he wants the Champions League as much as us.
"This can be the season for us."
