He said: ‘It’s going to have everything,
‘It’ll be a high-intensity match with plenty of hustle and bustle. I’ve played them a few times now and the first time I didn’t know what to expect.
‘They told me I had to start strong, and I remember I got taken out early on but then told myself that wouldn’t happen again.
‘We like to dominate possession and pass the ball around, but we’ll have to be wise to the counter-attack [on Sunday].’
