Chelsea Will Get Respect - And Nothing More!

There are times when you play your own game and let others worry about you ... and times when you set out your stall to disrupt others.

Tonight it is the latter.

And Southgate knows only too well, you get your tactics right or fear the Reaper.

Gareth Southgate: "You can't go to Chelsea and be wide open.

"You have to be defensively organised. You have to be disciplined in your approach to the game.

"What we have to do is to play to our strengths. We have to keep the ball when we are in possession and then defend as a team when we haven't got the ball.

"We have to stay positive.

"We have to go to Chelsea with winning in mind. There's nothing to be gained from developing a phobia over the game.

"At the same time we know it is one of the most difficult grounds in the country from which to come away with something, but we will give it our best shot.

"We have to take on board what other teams have done. Stoke were within five minutes of winning there a couple of weeks ago. It's all about motivation."

On-loan striker Marlon King could make his debut, while Brazilian record signing Afonso Alves has recovered from an Achilles injury.

Influential skipper Emanuel Pogatetz returns after injury and so does midfielder Julio Arca, though England Under-21 international defender Andrew Taylor is sidelined with an ankle ligament injury and French midfielder Didier Digard is still suspended.
