"We play another great team because Arsenal is a great team who can fight for the title.

"Don't forget we lost 3-0 away and I think this could be a good chance for us to show that the second part of the season we are a totally different team if you compare us to the previous game.

"It is a good chance for us. We play at home, which is very important, but it will be a really tough game."
