Silvestre told the official website:

'That game is going to be very important for us to stay in contention. We are at home with all our fans and I am sure all the players are going to be up for that one. I think we can stay positive and take something from the Chelsea game. It was the first one, but we have shown we have the spirit and some good movement from all the team and we can be confident for the future.'

He added: 'We deserved at least a draw, but in football you have to concentrate for 90 minutes. We conceded the goal very early in the game and while we had some occasions to come back, Chelsea played very tight and made it difficult for us to create a goal.'
