Newcastle United midfielder Nicky Butt is determined to beat Chelsea on Monday.

Butt is expecting a flurry of text messages from his old United pals.

Ryan Giggs got in touch following last season's stalemate.

And Butt said: "I'm sure the texts will come flying in but their destiny is still in their own hands.

"There is always an incentive to get a result, especially when we're at home.

"But when you're up against one of the big teams you definitely want to show you can compete with them.

"I've got a lot of friends at United, so it would be an added bonus if I could do it for them as well."
