He told liverpoolfc.tv: "It's such a long season, so we're not going to get carried away if we win, and by the same token it's not the end of the season if we lose.
"As well as that, Chelsea are one of our main rivals; we want to finish above them this season because they are a good team.
"We can take a lot of confidence from the fact we beat them in the same fixture last year, and we've got more options all over the pitch now. We're at home, so we will try to attack them and win the game."
He added: "There is a lot of rivalry between the players, that's only natural, especially when we've played them as much as we have over recent seasons. But it's no different to when we play the likes of Manchester United or Everton."
