"It's a fantastic game to have at home and I think everyone has been waiting, with growing anticipation, to have this one at our own stadium," said the 35-year-old.

"We all know the situation in the table, it's very close.

"We have played well so far, but we have had a few ups and downs, but we have the chance to take some points at home and against Chelsea, that is a special game."
