Harry's intent

Harry Redknapp has every intention of taking the game to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Carlo Ancelotti's men have kicked-off the campaign with six straight wins including five to top the Barclays Premier League.

Our 100 per cent winning start to the season was ended by reigning champions Manchester United last weekend but shutting up shop at Chelsea is not on Harry's agenda.

"We know how Chelsea play and the system they play," said Harry. "We have the players to exploit that system, there has to be areas we can exploit.

"It will be a tough game. I would expect them or Manchester United to be top come May, it will be between those two.

"Carlo Ancelotti's record is brilliant and he's taken over a great team. It's another big game. I don't look at the managers, whoever they may be; it's about the players.

"They play a system which is difficult to play against and they have good players.

"Drogba and Anelka is guaranteed 20 goals each plus Lampard as well - that is 60 goals between three players. What a fantastic return.

"We have to be aware of that but we have good players as well. We're full of internationals and we have to believe that we can cause more problems than them.

"We can't go there and nullify them for 90 minutes - we haven't got the players to do that. I have attacking players who like to play and express themselves. We'll attack them and give it our best shot."
