Faurlin takes his place in the side to face London rivals Chelsea today but insists the rivalry is nothing in comparison to back home.
He told the Sunday Mirror: "I know this rivalry means a lot to the fans, but I grew up in Argentina and my team was Rosario Central.
"The derby was against Newell Old Boys, and I'm telling you that is a real derby. Every time they play they want to kill each other!
"I went as a fan to those games so this is probably tame in comparison."
