Blackpool boss Ian Holloway concedes they will have to adjust their style of play for their Premiership.
Holloway is a thoughtful tactician who is well aware that he will have to make certain alterations in the Premier League.
"We want to do our best, and not do what some useless load of muppets are already saying we will – get less than 10 points," he told the Blackpool Gazette.
"People know I like a laugh and a joke, but my lads know I'm serious about the football and never will I be more tested than in the Premier League ... I can't wait.
"The way we play may have to be slightly different because we won't have as much of the ball, particularly away from home.
"That is going to affect the whole concept of how we play because our lads got used to having the lion's share of possession in nearly all the games last season.
"But next season will be totally different because I can't imagine Chelsea having only 48 per cent of possession against our 52 per cent, can you?"
