ANDRE ON 'MASSIVE WEEK'
Posted 24 November 2012 4:29pm
Andre Villas-Boas sees Sunday's derby against West Ham as the start of a 'massive week' for the team.
We've three Premier League fixtures in the space of six days including two London derbies and a high-profile clash against Liverpool.
It all kicks-off against the Hammers at the Lane tomorrow at 4pm followed by the Reds at home on Wednesday night and then a trip to Fulham on Saturday week, December 1.
After Thursday night's goalless draw at in-form Lazio in Rome, focus now turns to West Ham, who sit seventh after a run of just two defeats in nine.
"It’s an important game, and a completely different story to Lazio," said Andre.
"We have to be aware of their strengths and when we have the ball, not to go into their game, to keep the ball on the ground and try to create opportunities.
"The players are up for this game, that's for sure.
"It's a massive week for us because it's one fixture after another and then it's the Europa League again. With that in mind, it's important to get everyone back and great to see Mousa back in action against Lazio."
