SWP feels everything is in place for City to enjoy the kind of glory which Chelsea have achieved.
He told The Sun: "I stay in touch with everyone at Chelsea, all the lads I played with anyway.
"They know that last year we had them on the back foot so they are really starting to take a lot of notice of City.
"We beat them twice last year. They will be on red alert about us and will try to make sure they are more prepared this time around.
"Last season, we just all went out there as a team and believed we could do it and just went for it rather than waiting for them to come at us.
"We will go out trying to do the same thing to them again on Saturday."
