Cork is already looking forward to pitting his wits against his old side for a third time next Saturday.
â€śFor me, [playing] against Chelsea is always going to be a really good so Iâ€™ll be right up for it,â€ť he told Saints Player.
â€śThen we drew them in the cup here and then played them in the league soon afterwards so I got to play them twice in just over a week having looked forward to that for five-or-six years!
â€śI loved going back to Stamford Bridge and playing there, and it was a shame we didnâ€™t do too well in the cup â€“ but Iâ€™d prefer to take points off them in the league rather win a cup game.
â€śThis is a big game for us at a big time in the season, and hopefully we can do ourselves justice.â€ť
