Di Matteo wants Chelsea perfection against Shakhtar

Roberto Di Matteo wants his Chelsea side to produce the perfect performance against Shakhtar Donetsk tomorrow night.

The Blues host the Ukrainians in a vital Champions League encounter at Stamford Bridge and the Italian manager wants a much-improved showing on their recent 2-1 loss at the Donbass Arena as well as the Premier League defeat to Manchester United and draw with Swansea City.

"We need to be at our best. We need a perfect game tomorrow night. Every individual player going on the pitch has to perform at the highest of their ability," said Di Matteo.

"It's important we start well and get the crowd behind us and draw confidence from a good start.

"We have to play the perfect game tomorrow to beat Shakhtar, but we're strong at home. We've shown that over many years, and we'll be fired up for this game to win it.''
