Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham's best form of defence might be to attack against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Spurs make the short trip across London on Sunday to take on Carlo Ancelotti's troops in their own back garden.
Redknapp knows Chelsea are full of attacking threats, although he believes the Blues should be wary of his skilful stars as well.
Many sides attempt to grind out a goalless draw at Chelsea, but Redknapp insists his team will not set out to defend in numbers.
"We have to be aware of that, they have a great strike-force but we have good players as well," the Spurs boss said.
"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."
Meanwhile, Redknapp insists striker Robbie Keane can play on the left flank on the back of last weekend's 3-1 home defeat by Manchester United.
With Luka Modric on the sidelines Redknapp opted for Keane ahead of new signing Niko Kranjcar and despite a bright start by the home side, they were eventually toppled.
"Robbie can play there," Redknapp said. "He's a fantastic front man but he can play in that position. He comes off the line and can do the job in that position.
"Niko Kranjcar can play there and he won't be happy on the bench but that's football, that's life. We have to turn this into a club where it's not easy to get into the first team.
"Look around the league and see how many clubs there are where people are sitting on the bench who are top class - there are top players doing that at Manchester United, for example. That's what successful teams do, they have competition everywhere."
