Mauricio Taricco insists that every team is desperate for points - top, middle or bottom of the table.
The full-back accepts that playing teams near the foot of the table at this stage of the season can make life difficult, but points out that each team has an objective to fulfil.
"Every game is difficult," he pondered. "Yes they are fighting but, at the end of the day, every team is fighting for something.
"We are fighting for a place in Europe, Chelsea are fighting to be near the top. There is always something to fight for and you have to go and do the best that you can."
Mauricio is keenly aware that maximum points need to be achieved from successive home games and feels the team have taken confidence from the performance at Chelsea last week.
"Definitely, we know that. It was a good point against Chelsea, but if we want to get in the European spot it is maximum points that we need from the two coming games.
"We did alright at Stamford Bridge. In the last couple of games away from home we have been solid and have passed the ball quite well."
