Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni has told Chelsea they can forget about celebrating the Premiership title this weekend.
Speroni and his Palace teammates are all that stands between the Blues and their first Premiership title in five-years.
The 35-year-old veteran said that he wants to make sure that no one in blue will be celebrating when the final whistle blows Sunday afternoon at Stamford Bridge.
He said: “You don’t want anyone to lift the trophy in your face, that’s not nice. Of course we know we have a job to do.
“We play for Crystal Palace and we have to do the best we can and that’s the mentality we have to have. We are not going to go over there just to see what happens, we are going over there to win.
“Obviously it’s going to be tough because we know it’s Chelsea, but we are really looking forward to it.
“It’s special occasion for the fans, and we know how many people watch these games around the world and we are happy to be a part of it. We want to do a good job for the club, that’s for sure.”
Even if Chelsea does win tomorrow, the trophy will not be presented to them until after their final game of the season against Sunderland on May 24th.
