The centre back of Stoke City, Robert Huth, has said that the upcoming Premier League match against Chelsea will be a special one for him and he desperately wants to perform well in that match. Stoke City will take on Chelsea on Saturday.

Huth had begun his career at Chelsea. He had joined Chelsea in 2001 when he was just 17 years old. He played for Chelsea for 5 years and then, in 2006, he joined Middlesbrough. During his tenure at Chelsea, Huth played 42 matches, but, he didn’t manage to score any goal.

When asked about the upcoming match against Chelsea, Huth said, “It will be a special match for me. When you play against your old club, you always want to do well. I also want to give my best in Saturday’s match.”

When asked how good Chelsea is as a team, Huth said, “They are a very good unit. They have got a lot of powerful strikers. Demba Ba scored a couple of goals in his debut game. Juan Mata has also been performing consistently and then, they have got Fernando Torres who is in the form of his life at the moment. So, they have got some really good attacking options.”

“They had struggled a bit with their defense earlier in the season, but, now it seems that they have sorted out that problem. Their defenders have really performed well in the last few games. So, they have got all their bases covered and to defeat them, we will have to play some extraordinary football.”

When asked about his tenure at Chelsea, Huth said, “Playing for Chelsea was really an enjoyable experience. I learnt a lot of things there. It’s my first club, so, it’s close to my heart. I still miss those days.”
