Samuel Eto'o is hoping his fine record against English opposition continues against Chelsea on Wednesday.
The Inter Milan striker is set to go head-to-head with the Blues in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
The Cameroon international was part of the Barcelona side which sent Chelsea crashing out at the semi-final stage of last season's competition, before notching in the final as the Catalan giants saw off Manchester United.
Eto'o is confident he can repeat that trick with Inter and believes the Serie A leaders will be too strong for their Premier League rivals at Giuseppe Meazza.
"My experience against the English was good last season. Now I intend to repeat it against the Blues," he said.
The midweek clash in Milan will also see Jose Mourinho pitched against his former employers for the first time since leaving Stamford Bridge in 2007.
His presence has helped to stoke the flames of an already combustible contest, but Eto'o insists the Portuguese tactician has been calmness personified in the build-up to the game.
"The boss is relaxed and it's normal that he wants us to show Chelsea our best," added the African ace.
"You can be sure that every secret of their defensive line has been explained to us.
"I think it will be a very tactical match that will take the whole 180 minutes over both legs to decide.
"It's necessary to play and prepare as calmly as we can. Anxiety is negative because this is the time to be strong. But I have yet to see Mourinho nervous."
